When you register a domain name, you have to supply a valid home address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can view your details and certain individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, lots of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see 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 names 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 added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have ordered a cloud hosting plan from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your private information intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its color will inform you whether a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can secure your private details even if you have not enabled the service during the hosting account order procedure. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

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 with ease. This requires just a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage everything associated with your semi-dedicated account. This is where you can see all your active domains and for each of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can order, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with gTLD and ccTLD extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you will not end up buying a service that we cannot provide.
