When you register a domain name, you are obliged to provide a genuine postal address, email account and phone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can see your information and lots of individuals may not be pleased with that fact. As a consequence, many registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting
You can quickly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you have registered with our company if you have a web hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you won’t need to use different admin interfaces. In the same section where all your registered domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly let you know whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a specific domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service if you haven’t done so during the signup procedure. What’s more, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using the very same icon and the change will take effect straight away.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by completing a couple of easy steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the account activation process, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you think things over later, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signing up. Renewing or disabling the service is just as simple and will require just several clicks of the mouse.
