When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply a genuine street address, email and telephone in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can view your details and some people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, plenty of registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names as long as their extensions support this option. You can register/transfer a domain name and add Whois Privacy Protection during the registration process or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any time later via the Hepsia Control Panel. The procedure is astonishingly easy – after you sign in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered with us. For each of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will tell you whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently active.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’d like to conceal the contact info associated with your domain and you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the registration process or at any moment later via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be activated with a couple of clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you’ve registered through us will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” button on the right-hand side of each domain name. In the exact same manner, you can also renew the service or shut it off – if you want to transfer a domain name to some other registrar and you need the actual mailbox associated with the domain name to be visible.
