When you register a domain, you are requested to provide an authentic home address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can see your information and a lot of people may not be okay with that fact. As a consequence, lots of domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is astonishingly easy if you have a shared web hosting service. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you wish to transfer a certain domain to some other company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact details with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unsolicited individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
Activating Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is exceptionally easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered with our company, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server package. In case a particular generic or country-code top-level domain name supports Whois Privacy Protection, you will see a tiny sign on its right. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you will have to click on it. In the exact same manner, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the account order process too, but since the service is optional, we will offer you the possibility to add it to any of your domains later if you change your mind and decide to hide your personal details from the public after you have already ordered the account.
