When you register a domain, you are asked to give a valid address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS websites too, so anybody can see your information and many individuals may not be happy with this. Consequently, numerous domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with us is unbelievably easy in case you’ve got a hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain 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 would like to transfer a particular domain to some other registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact info with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by taking a couple of simple steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you skip this step and you think things over afterwards, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register with our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will require only a couple of mouse clicks.
