When you register a domain name, you are obliged to provide a valid street address, email and telephone number as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can view your details and lots of individuals may not be satisfied with this. As a consequence, plenty of domain name registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is surprisingly easy if you have a shared hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – if you’d like to transfer a given domain name to another domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with only several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unauthorized persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is very easy if you have a semi-dedicated server. If the domain name is registered through our company, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan. In case a given generic or country-specific domain name is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you will notice a mini logo on its right. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you will need to click on it. In the same manner, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the account order procedure as well, but since the service is optional, we’ll give you the opportunity to add it to any of your domain names at a later time if you change your mind and choose to conceal your personal information from the general public after you have already ordered the account.
