When you register a domain, you need to provide a valid street address, email account and phone as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can see your information and many individuals may not be okay with that fact. As a result, lots of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the 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 Cloud Web Hosting
You can quickly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company in case you have a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be done through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account, so you will not need to switch between different Control Panels. In the same section where all your active domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each and every domain name whose extension supports the service. The status of that icon will quickly let you know if the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a specific domain or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service in case you have not done so upon signup. You will also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the exact same icon and the change will take effect immediately.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by following a couple of simple steps. In case you register or transfer a domain during the signup process, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you omit this step and you change your mind at a later point in time, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after signup. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will require just several mouse clicks.
