When you register a domain, you are obliged to give a genuine address, email and phone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anyone can see your details and many people may not be OK with that fact. Consequently, plenty of registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world 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 Website Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is unbelievably easy in case you have a Linux cloud website hosting service. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll just need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you would like to transfer a given domain to a different registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact information with just a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unsolicited people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you want to hide the contact info associated with your domain and you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the registration procedure or at any moment afterwards through our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you have registered with us will be listed in alphabetical order. You can order 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 way, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it – if you would like to transfer a domain to a different domain name registrar and you need the real email address associated with the domain name to be visible.
