When you register a domain name, you are required to supply an authentic address, email account and phone as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS websites as well, so anybody can check your information and many people may not be delighted with this. Consequently, lots of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world 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 Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from us, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names on the condition that their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection upon registration or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment later through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is exceptionally easy – after you sign in, you will have to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll see a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through us. For each one of them you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will inform you whether the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by following several simple steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the signup process, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later point in time, 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 activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after signup. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will require only a couple of mouse clicks.
