When you register a domain, you need to give an authentic postal address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can check your information and many individuals may not be okay with that fact. As a result, lots of domain name registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can swiftly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you have registered with our company if you have a cloud hosting account with us. This can be done through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account, so you will not have to go through different user interfaces. In the very same section where all your active domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each and every domain whose extension supports this option. The status of that icon will quickly show you if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a certain domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can activate the service if you have not done so during the signup procedure. What’s more, you will also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the same icon and the change will take effect momentarily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without difficulty. This takes just several clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domains and for each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, using which you can enable, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code TLD extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you won’t end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
