When you register a domain, you are asked to provide a valid home address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anybody can see your info and many individuals may not be comfortable with this. As a result, plenty of registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is extremely easy in case you’ve got a web hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you’d like to transfer a particular domain to a different registrar company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without any effort. This requires only a couple of clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything associated with your account. This is where you can see all your domains and for each of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, using which you can enable, renew or deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code domain name extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
