When you register a domain name, you are requested to provide an authentic home address, email and phone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can view your info and lots of individuals may not be satisfied with this. As a result, plenty of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is really easy if you have a shared hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, 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 completely – if you wish to transfer a given domain to some other registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
Enabling Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is astonishingly easy if you have a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain name is registered through us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan. In case a specific generic or country-specific domain is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you’ll notice a tiny icon on its right. To activate the service, you’ll have to click on it. In the very same manner, you can also renew or disable the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the account order process as well, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we will give you the possibility to add it to any of your domain names at a later point in time in case you change your mind and decide to conceal your private information from the general public after you have already ordered the semi-dedicated account.
