When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give an authentic postal address, email and telephone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can check your information and a lot of people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, plenty of domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is really easy in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will only 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 top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a given domain to some other domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact details with only several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by following several simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account activation process, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you omit this step and you change your mind afterwards, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signing up. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will require only a few clicks of the mouse.
