When you register a domain, you are required to supply a valid address, email account and telephone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS sites too, so anyone can check your info and some individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, a lot of domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through us is exceptionally easy in case you’ve got a hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it altogether – if you wish to transfer a certain domain name to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact info with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthorized persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is amazingly easy if you have a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered through us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated package. If a particular generic or country-specific domain is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you will notice a small sign on its right. To enable the service, you will need to click on it. In the same manner, you can also renew or remove the service. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the registration procedure too, but since the service is optional, we will give you the opportunity to add it to any of your domain names later in case you change your mind and choose to conceal your private info from the public after you have already ordered the semi-dedicated account.
