When you register a domain, you are requested to provide an authentic home address, email and phone number as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can see your details and a lot of people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, a lot of registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. 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 Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names provided that their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the account activation procedure or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any time afterwards via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is astonishingly easy – once you log in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domain names that you have registered with us. For each of them you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will show you whether the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without any difficulty. This requires only several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything connected with your semi-dedicated account. This is the place where you can see all your domain names and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, using which you can enable, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific domain extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this in advance, so you won’t end up buying a service that we can’t provide.
