When you register a domain, you have to provide a valid home address, email account and telephone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can check your information and lots of people may not be comfortable with this. As a result, lots of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is amazingly easy if you’ve got a shared web hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you want to transfer a certain domain to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to hide the contact details for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to activate our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order procedure or at any moment afterwards through our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be enabled with several clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you’ve registered with us will be listed in alphabetical order. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each domain. In the very same way, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it – in case you would like to transfer a domain to a different registrar company and you need the actual mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
