When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give a genuine street address, email account and phone as per the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anyone can check your information and a lot of individuals may not be delighted with this. As a consequence, lots of registrars have launched 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 names refer to the exact same service. As of now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is stunningly easy in case you’ve got a Linux web hosting plan. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will just need to go to 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 disable it completely – in case you wish to transfer a specific domain name to another company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without any difficulty. This requires only several clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you manage everything related to your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domains and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, using which you can activate, renew or disable the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you won’t end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
