In accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date all the time. Besides, this information is freely available on WHOIS websites and while this may be okay for firms, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because anyone can see their names and their personal email and home addresses, especially in times when identity fraud is not that atypical. This is why domain registrars have come up with a service that conceals the details of their clients without editing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it is active, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS inquiry. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic top-level domain name extensions, but it’s still impossible to conceal your info with some country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is astonishingly easy if you have a Linux hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code top-level domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – if you’d like to transfer a particular domain to some other domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact info with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without any effort. This takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you administer everything associated with your account. This is where you can see all your domains and for each of them you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can activate, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
