In accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date all the time. Furthermore, this information is publicly accessible on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may not be a problem for organizations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since anybody can view their names and their personal postal and email addresses, all the more so in an age when identity theft is not that rare. This is the reason why domain registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their customers without altering them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is activated, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they perform a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your private details with certain country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is surprisingly easy in case you have a Linux cloud web hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll only have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you want to transfer a certain domain name to another company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact info with just a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by following several simple steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account activation process, you can get the service together with the domain. If you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through our company after signup. Renewing or disabling the service is just as simple and will require just a few clicks.
