In accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain name is registered with must be correct and accurate at all times. Plus, this info is publicly visible on WHOIS websites and while this may not be a problem for firms, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because everyone can see their names and their personal postal and email addresses, all the more so in times when identity fraud isn’t that uncommon. This is why registrars have introduced a service that conceals the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is activated, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner, if they do a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it’s still not possible to conceal your private info with some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is amazingly easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting package. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you will only have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – if you want to transfer a particular domain name to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact info with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unauthenticated individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Enabling Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is exceptionally easy if you have a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered with us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated package. If a specific generic or country-code domain is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you’ll notice a tiny button on the right-hand side of that domain. To enable the service, you’ll need to click on it. In the very same way, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the registration procedure as well, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we’ll offer you the opportunity to add it to any of your domain names at a later point in time if you think things over and opt to conceal your personal details from the public eye after you have already ordered the account.
