When you register a domain name, you have to supply a genuine postal address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can view your details and some individuals may not be happy with that fact. As a consequence, lots of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux cloud website hosting package from us and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your private details intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its color will tell you if a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with only a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can shield your private data even if you have not enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the hosting account order procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This requires just several mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated account. This is where you can see all your active domain names and for each of them you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can order, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with gTLD and ccTLD extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you will not end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
