When you register a domain name, you are requested to supply an authentic address, email account and phone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can see your information and certain people may not be delighted with this. As a consequence, plenty of registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains if their extensions support this option. You can register/transfer a domain name and add Whois Privacy Protection during the signup process or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any time afterwards via the Hepsia Control Panel. The procedure is unbelievably easy – once you log in, you will have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will inform you if the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service without difficulty. This takes only a few clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage everything related to your account. This is where you can see all your registered domains and for each one of them you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, using which you can order, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific TLD extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
