When you register a domain, you need to give a genuine address, email account and phone in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can see your details and a lot of individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a result, lots of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is astonishingly easy if you have a Linux shared website hosting service. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you’ll simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – if you’d like to transfer a certain domain name to some other company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact details with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have 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 requires just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you administer everything related to your semi-dedicated account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can enable, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific domain name extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you will not end up requesting a service that we cannot provide.
