When you register a domain, you need to give a valid postal address, email and phone in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can see your details and certain people may not be OK with this. As a result, many domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud hosting from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your private details secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol to the right of each of your domain names. Its colour will let you know whether a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with just a few clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can safeguard your private data even if you have not enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the registration process. You will 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

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a few simple steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the account activation procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you change your mind at a later point in time, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with our company after the signup process. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will require only several mouse clicks.
