When you register a domain, you need to supply an authentic street address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS sites too, so anyone can see your info and certain people may not be satisfied with this. As a consequence, lots of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have ordered a shared website hosting service from us and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them easily and to keep your personal info secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol next to each of your domain names. Its color will show you if a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can shield your private data even if you have not enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the registration process. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a couple of easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you skip this step and you think things over later, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through our company after signup. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will require no more than a few mouse clicks.
