When you register a domain name, you are required to give a genuine address, email account and phone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anybody can check your information and many individuals may not be delighted with that fact. Consequently, a lot of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is surprisingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud package. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you’ll simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a given domain name to another domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact info with just several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to conceal the contact details for your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order procedure or at any time later via our Hepsia Control Panel. The service is optional and can be added with a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you’ve registered through us will be listed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon to the right of each domain. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew the service or disable it – in case you want to transfer a domain to a different company and you need the actual email account associated with the domain name to be visible.
