When you register a domain, you need to provide an authentic address, email account and phone in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can check your details and some people may not be satisfied with this. As a consequence, lots of registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is extremely easy in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you’ll only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – if you’d like 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 only a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This requires only a couple of clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated account. This is the place where you can see all your domain names and for each of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can activate, renew or remove the service. Of course, this can be done only with gTLD and ccTLD extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
