When you register a domain, you are required to provide an authentic address, email and phone as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can see your information and certain people may not be pleased with that fact. As a result, numerous registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, 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. Currently, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve ordered a Linux shared hosting
from our company and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your personal information safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its colour will show you whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only several clicks. In this way, you can secure your private data even if you haven’t enabled the service during the registration procedure. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide 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 couple of easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain name during the account activation process, you can get the service along with the domain. If you skip this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will take just a few clicks.
