When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide an authentic home address, email account and phone as per 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 available to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can check your details and many individuals may not be delighted with this. Consequently, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have ordered a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company and you’ve 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 safe. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will show you if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your personal details even if you have not enabled the service during the hosting account activation procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by following several simple steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the account activation procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you skip this step and you think things over afterwards, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, 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 domain names that you register with us after the signup process. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take only a few clicks.
