When you register a domain name, you are requested to give an authentic street address, email and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anyone can see your information and some individuals may not be okay with this. As a consequence, plenty of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see 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 expressions refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

You can swiftly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you have registered through our company if you’ve got a hosting account with us. This can be done through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account itself, so you won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools. In the same section where all your active domain names will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly let you know whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a particular domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can enable the service if you haven’t done so during the registration process. Additionally, you’ll also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the change will take effect straight away.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without difficulty. This takes only a couple of mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can order, renew or deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific domain name extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
