According to the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain name is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. What’s more, this info is freely accessible on WHOIS web sites and while this may be OK for corporations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since anybody can view their names and their personal email and street addresses, especially in an age when identity fraud is not that rare. This is why domain name registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their clients without changing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s enabled, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still not possible to conceal your private details with some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is amazingly easy in case you have a Linux cloud website hosting package. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you wish to transfer a certain domain name to another company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact information with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking several easy steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you change your mind later, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after signing up. Renewing or disabling the service is just as simple and will require no more than a few clicks.
