When you register a domain, you have to provide an authentic street address, email account and telephone as per the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can see your information and a lot of individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, lots of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Today, 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 option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting
If you’ve ordered a hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your personal data secure. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign to the right of each of your domains. Its color will inform you whether a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In this way, you can secure your private information even if you haven’t added the service during the signup process. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to conceal the contact information for your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account activation procedure or at any time afterwards through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be activated with several mouse clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you’ve registered through us will be listed alphabetically. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon next to each domain name. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or shut it off – if you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar company and you need the real mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
