When you register a domain name, you need to give an authentic address, email account and phone number as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can check your details and some people may not be pleased with that fact. As a consequence, lots of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting
You can quickly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you’ve registered through our company if you’ve got a website hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you won’t need to use different Control Panels. In the exact same section where all your registered domain names will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each and every domain whose extension supports the service. The status of this icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a specific domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service in case you have not done so during the account activation process. In addition, you will also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the update will take effect instantaneously.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by taking a couple of simple steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with us after signing up. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
