When you register a domain, you are required to supply a genuine postal address, email and phone as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can check your info and certain people may not be comfortable with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains provided that their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection during the registration procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any time afterwards via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is unbelievably easy – once you sign in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domain names that you have registered through us. For each of them you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will tell you if the service is enabled or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently activated.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is stunningly easy in case you have a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered through us, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan. In case a particular generic or country-code domain name is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you will notice a small button on the right-hand side of that domain. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you’ll have to click on it. In the very same fashion, you can also renew or disable the service. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the signup process as well, but since the service is optional, we’ll offer you the possibility to add it to any of your domain names at a later time if you think things over and choose to conceal your personal details from the public eye after you’ve already ordered the semi-dedicated account.
