When you register a domain, you have to give a valid street address, email and telephone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anyone can view your info and many individuals may not be pleased with this. As a result, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting
If you’ve ordered a hosting from us 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 without any effort and to keep your personal details safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button to the right of each of your domain names. Its color will let you know if a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with just several clicks. In this way, you can safeguard your personal details even if you have not activated the service during the registration process. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose 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 a couple of easy steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you omit this step and you think things over afterwards, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register with us after the signup process. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
