When you register a domain name, you are required to provide a valid postal address, email account and phone number 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 available to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can view your information and some people may not be OK with that fact. As a consequence, plenty of domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see 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. As of now, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is unbelievably easy if you have a shared hosting plan. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will just need to go to 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 top-level domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it completely – in case you wish to transfer a specific domain to a different registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact info with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to hide the contact info for your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the signup procedure or at any time afterwards through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be activated with a few clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company will be listed in alphabetical order. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” button to the right of each domain. In the very same way, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it – in case you wish to transfer a domain to a different registrar and you need the actual email associated with the domain name to be visible.
