When you register a domain name, you are required to give an authentic postal address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can view your info and some people may not be pleased with this. Consequently, numerous registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting
You can quickly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you’ve registered with our company in case you have a web hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account, so you will not have to go through different interfaces. In the exact same section where all your registered domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain name whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a certain domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can enable the service if you have not done so during the account activation procedure. Besides, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using the exact same icon and the change will take effect instantaneously.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to conceal the contact information associated with your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order procedure or at any moment later through your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be added with several clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered through our company will be listed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the top-level domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each domain. In the very same way, you can also renew the service or shut it off – if you’d like to transfer a domain name to some other domain name registrar and you need the real email associated with the domain name to be visible.
