When you register a domain name, you are obliged to supply a valid postal address, email and phone as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can check your info and a lot of people may not be pleased with this. As a consequence, plenty of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is incredibly easy in case you have a Linux cloud package. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you want to transfer a given domain name to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact info with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Enabling Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is unbelievably easy in case you have a semi-dedicated server. If the domain is registered with us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan. In case a given generic or country-specific Top-Level Domain supports Whois Privacy Protection, you will see a small logo on the right-hand side of that domain. To activate the service, you will need to click on it. In the same way, you can also renew or remove the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the registration process too, but since the service is optional, we’ll give you the opportunity to add it to any of your domain names at a later time in case you think things over and choose to hide your personal information from the public after you’ve already created the semi-dedicated account.
