When you register a domain, you need to provide a genuine street address, email and phone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can view your information and certain individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a result, many companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is astonishingly easy in case you’ve got a hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll just have to visit 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 TLD that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – in case you wish to transfer a given domain name to another registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact details with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This takes only several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything connected with your account. This is the place where you can see all your active domain names and for each one of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can order, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code TLD extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this in advance, so that you will not end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
