When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide a valid postal address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anyone can view your details and many people may not be comfortable with this. Consequently, lots of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, 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 expressions refer to the exact same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is really easy in case you have a Linux cloud hosting. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – in case you want to transfer a given domain name to another domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact info with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service effortlessly. This takes just several mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you administer everything related to your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your active domain names and for each one of them you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can enable, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so you will not end up paying for a service that we can’t provide.
