When you register a domain name, you need to give an authentic street address, email and phone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anybody can see your information and certain people may not be okay with that fact. As a result, plenty of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Nowadays, 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 don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux cloud hosting package from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your private details safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its colour will let you know if a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only several mouse clicks. In this way, you can shield your personal info even if you have not added the service during the registration procedure. 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 Hosting

If you wish to conceal the contact details associated with your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to activate our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order procedure or at any moment later through your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is optional and can be added with several clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you have registered with our company will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon to the right of each domain. In the very same way, you can also renew the service or shut it off – if you would like to transfer a domain to some other domain name registrar and you need the real email account associated with the domain name to be visible.
