When you register a domain, you are required to give a genuine postal address, email account and telephone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can check your details and lots of individuals may not be comfortable with this. As a result, lots of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve ordered a shared hosting service
from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any difficulty and to keep your private information safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its colour will let you know whether a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with just a few mouse clicks. In this way, you can secure your private details even if you haven’t added the service during the web hosting account order procedure. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains in a couple of easy steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you think things over at a later time, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after the signup process. Renewing or disabling the service is just as simple and will take no more than a few mouse clicks.
