When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give a valid home address, email and telephone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can view your information and many people may not be comfortable with this. As a result, plenty of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains on the condition that their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection during the account activation procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any moment later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is unbelievably easy – once you sign in, you will need to go to the Registered Domains section where you will notice a list of all the domains that you have registered through our company. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will show you if the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently active.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you wish to hide the contact info associated with your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any time afterwards through your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you have registered with us will be listed alphabetically. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the Top-Level Domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button next to each domain name. In the exact same way, you can also renew the service or turn it off – in case you wish to transfer a domain to another company and you need the actual email account associated with the domain name to be visible.
