When you register a domain, you are asked to provide an authentic address, email and telephone as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS websites as well, so anybody can check your information and a lot of individuals may not be delighted with that fact. As a consequence, lots of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Currently, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud service from us 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 effort and to keep your private details intact. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button next to each of your domain names. Its color will let you know if a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a couple of mouse clicks. Thus, you can shield your personal details even if you have not activated the Whois Privacy Protection service during the registration procedure. You’ll 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

Activating Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is unbelievably easy if you have a semi-dedicated server. If the domain is registered through our company, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated package. If a particular generic or country-specific top-level domain name supports Whois Privacy Protection, you’ll notice a small icon on its right. To activate the service, you’ll need to click on it. In the very same manner, you can also renew or remove the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the signup procedure as well, but since the service is optional, we’ll give you the possibility to add it to any of your domain names later if you change your mind and choose to hide your private info from the general public after you have already created the semi-dedicated account.
