According to the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. What’s more, this information is publicly visible on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may be okay for companies, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because anybody can see their names and their personal home and email addresses, all the more so in an age when identity fraud isn’t that unusual. That’s the reason why registrar companies have come up with a service that conceals the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is active, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it’s still not possible to hide your info with certain country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is unbelievably easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud service. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – if you wish to transfer a certain domain to a different domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with just a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains in a few simple steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you omit this step and you think things over at a later time, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with us after signing up. Renewing or removing the service is just as easy and will require no more than several clicks.
