When you register a domain name, you are required to give an authentic home address, email and phone in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anyone can view your info and lots of people may not be satisfied with this. As a result, plenty of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s 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 expressions refer to the very same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux cloud website hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your private information secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its color will let you know whether a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your personal details even if you have not added the service during the registration procedure. You will 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 Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This requires just a few mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything connected with your semi-dedicated account. This is where you can see all your registered domains and for each of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, using which you can activate, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with gTLD and ccTLD extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this in advance, so that you won’t end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
