When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply a genuine address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can view your details and lots of individuals may not be happy with that fact. As a result, a lot of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting
If you order a website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names provided that their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection upon signup or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any time later through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is amazingly easy – after you log in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered through us. For each of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will tell you whether the service is active or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently active.
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 enable our Whois Privacy Protection service with ease. This requires just several mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything related to your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can activate, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific TLD extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
