When you register a domain, you have to supply an authentic postal address, email and phone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can see your details and some individuals may not be happy with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names on the condition that their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the registration procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any time later through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is stunningly easy – after you sign in, you will need to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will inform you whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently enabled.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to hide the contact info associated with your domain and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to activate our Whois Privacy Protection service either upon registration or at any moment afterwards via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be added with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domain names that you have registered with us will be listed alphabetically. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain name extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each domain name. In the very same way, you can also renew the service or remove it – in case you wish to transfer a domain to some other domain registrar and you need the actual email account associated with the domain name to be visible.
