When you register a domain name, you are asked to give an authentic postal address, email account and telephone number 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 name registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anyone can view your information and a lot of people may not be pleased with this. As a consequence, a lot of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view 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 names refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can effortlessly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you have registered with our company if you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account itself, so you will not have to use different Control Panels. In the same section where all your registered domains will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain whose extension supports the service. The status of this icon will quickly let you know if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a given domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can add the service if you have not done so upon registration. Plus, you will also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using that same icon and the update will take effect instantaneously.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without any effort. This takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything connected with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domains and for each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, using which you can activate, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up paying for a service that we can’t provide.
