When you register a domain name, you are asked to supply a genuine home address, email account and telephone as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anyone can see your information and many individuals may not be delighted with this. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see 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 expressions refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is unbelievably easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting package. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it altogether – if you wish to transfer a certain domain to a different domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact info with only several clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthenticated individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names in a few simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you change your mind later, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with us after signing up. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will require only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
