When you register a domain, you need to provide a genuine street address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS sites as well, so anybody can view your info and some people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, many registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting
You can swiftly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you’ve registered through our company if you’ve got a website hosting
account with us. This can be accomplished through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you will not have to switch between different tools. In the very same section where all your registered domains will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain name whose extension supports this service. The status of that icon will quickly show you if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a specific domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can activate the service in case you haven’t done so during the account activation procedure. Moreover, you will also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using that same icon and the change will take effect instantly.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains in a couple of easy steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account activation process, you can get the service together with the domain. If you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with our company after signing up. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will take no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
