When you register a domain, you are asked to provide an authentic address, email and phone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anyone can see your information and lots of individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. As a consequence, many registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names on the condition that their extensions support this option. You can register/transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection upon registration or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any time afterwards through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is surprisingly easy – after you log in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will inform you whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can turn off the service if it is currently enabled.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a few simple steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the account order procedure, you can get the service together with the domain. In case you skip this step and you change your mind at a later point in time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can manage 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 through our company after signup. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will require only a few mouse clicks.
