When you register a domain name, you have to give a genuine address, email account and telephone 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 registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can see your info and lots of people may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, many registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have ordered a cloud hosting plan from our company and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your personal data secure. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button to the right of each of your domain names. Its color will show you whether a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a couple of clicks. Thus, you can secure your personal info even if you haven’t added the service during the registration process. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you want to conceal the contact info for your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to activate our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the registration procedure or at any moment afterwards through your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be enabled with a few clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered through us will be listed alphabetically. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the TLD extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign next to each domain. In the same manner, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it – in case you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar and you need the actual email associated with the domain to be visible.
