When you register a domain name, you are requested to provide a valid postal address, email account and phone as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anyone can see your info and certain people may not be pleased with this. As a result, numerous domain name registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud website hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your personal details intact. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will inform you whether a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a few mouse clicks. In this way, you can protect your personal details even if you have not enabled the service during the signup procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’d like to conceal the contact details for your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account activation process or at any moment afterwards via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be enabled with a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company will be displayed alphabetically. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the top-level domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon to the right of each domain. In the exact same way, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or turn it off – if you wish to transfer a domain to a different domain name registrar and you need the real email address associated with the domain to be visible.
