When you register a domain name, you need to supply an authentic street address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites too, so anybody can see your information and lots of individuals may not be satisfied with this. As a result, plenty of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is incredibly easy if you have a hosting plan. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it altogether – in case you wish to transfer a certain domain to a different registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with just a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service effortlessly. This takes just several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you manage everything associated with your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is where you can see all your active domains and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can activate, renew or remove the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code domain extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you won’t end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
