When you register a domain, you are asked to provide a valid address, email and telephone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check sites too, so anybody can view your info and certain people may not be okay with that fact. Consequently, lots of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the 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 one and the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is remarkably easy if you’ve got a web hosting. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will just need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – in case you want to transfer a particular domain to a different registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’d like to conceal the contact details associated with your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either upon signup or at any time later through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you’ve registered through us will be listed alphabetically. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo next to each domain name. In the same fashion, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or turn it off – in case you’d like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar and you need the actual email associated with the domain to be visible.
