When you register a domain name, you need to provide a genuine street address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anybody can check your information and lots of individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, many domain registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can swiftly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account, so you won’t need to go through different tools. In the same section where all your active domain names will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain whose extension supports this service. The status of each icon will quickly let you know if the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a specific domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can enable the service if you haven’t done so upon registration. You’ll also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the change will take effect momentarily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by following several easy steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the account activation procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you think things over afterwards, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with us after signing up. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take only several clicks.
