When you register a domain, you are asked to give an authentic address, email and phone as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anyone can view your info and a lot of individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a consequence, lots of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, 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. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud hosting from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your personal details intact. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its color will let you know whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with only a couple of mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your private information even if you have not activated the Whois Privacy Protection service upon registration. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to hide the contact information for your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to activate our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any moment later through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be added with a few clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you’ve registered with us will be displayed alphabetically. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button on the right-hand side of each domain name.
