When you register a domain, you have to give a valid home address, email account and telephone number as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can view your details and lots of people may not be satisfied with this. As a result, lots of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is extremely easy in case you have a Linux cloud hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, 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 service or disable it altogether – if you would like to transfer a certain domain name to a different registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact information with just a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without any difficulty. This takes only a few mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage everything related to your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is where you can see all your active domains and for each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, using which you can activate, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this in advance, so that you will not end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
