When you register a domain name, you have to supply a valid home address, email and telephone number as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS sites too, so anybody can see your details and lots of individuals may not be okay with that fact. As a result, plenty of domain registrars have come up with 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 registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

You can effortlessly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you have registered through our company if you have a shared hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you will not need to switch between different platforms. In the exact same section where all your active domain names will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain name whose extension supports the service. The status of that icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a given domain or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service in case you haven’t done so during the signup process. Plus, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using the very same icon and the change will take effect immediately.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by following several simple steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the signup process, you can get the service together with the domain name. If you skip this step and you think things over afterwards, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through our company after signup. Renewing or disabling the service is just as easy and will take just several mouse clicks.
