When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide an authentic street address, email and phone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can view your info and certain individuals may not be happy with this. As a result, plenty of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Nowadays, 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 service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is extremely easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting package. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll only have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a certain domain to some other company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact info with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unsolicited individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is extremely easy in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain name is registered through us, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server plan. If a given generic or country-code Top-Level Domain is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you will notice a tiny icon to the right of that domain. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you will have to click on it. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew or disable the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the signup procedure too, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we will give you the chance to add it to any of your domains at a later point in time if you change your mind and choose to conceal your private information from the general public after you’ve already ordered the account.
