When you register a domain, you have to give an authentic postal address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can see your information and lots of people may not be comfortable with that fact. As a result, plenty of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see 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 expressions refer to the very same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is surprisingly easy if you’ve got a shared web hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, 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 Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it completely – in case you wish to transfer a certain domain name to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with only a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unsolicited individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
Activating Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is surprisingly easy in case you have a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered through us, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated package. In case a given generic or country-code Top-Level Domain supports Whois Privacy Protection, you’ll notice a mini sign to the right of that domain. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you’ll have to click on it. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew or disable the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the account activation process as well, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we’ll offer you the chance to add it to any of your domain names later in case you think things over and decide to conceal your private info from the public after you have already created the account.
