When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide a genuine street address, email and telephone as per the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can check your information and many individuals may not be OK with this. As a result, a lot of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names in case their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the signup procedure or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any moment later through the Hepsia Control Panel. The procedure is surprisingly easy – after you sign in, you will have to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through us. For each of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will inform you whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently enabled.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by completing several simple steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the signup process, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you change your mind afterwards, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will require no more than a couple of mouse clicks.
