When you register a domain, you are asked to provide an authentic home address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can check your info and certain individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. As a result, numerous domain registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve ordered a Linux cloud hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your personal info secure. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon next to each of your domains. Its colour will tell you whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with just several mouse clicks. In this way, you can protect your personal data even if you have not added the Whois Privacy Protection service upon signup. 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 Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without any difficulty. This takes just several mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage everything associated with your semi-dedicated account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can order, renew or remove the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific domain name extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up buying a service that we can’t provide.
