When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide a valid home address, email account and telephone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can see your information and certain individuals may not be pleased with that fact. As a consequence, plenty of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is unbelievably easy if you’ve got a Linux hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will simply have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a specific domain to a different registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to conceal the contact details for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either upon registration or at any time afterwards through our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be activated with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domain names that you have registered with our company will be displayed alphabetically. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the TLD extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol next to each domain. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it – in case you wish to transfer a domain name to some other domain name registrar and you need the real mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
