In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain name is registered with must be valid and up to date all the time. In addition, this info is publicly visible on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may not be a problem for firms, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because anyone can view their names and their personal postal and email addresses, particularly in an age when identity fraud is not that infrequent. That’s why domain name registrars have introduced a service that conceals the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it is activated, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s, if they do a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your personal information with some country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud web hosting package from our company and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them easily and to keep your personal information secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will let you know if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a few clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can shield your private details even if you have not added the Whois Privacy Protection 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 have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without any difficulty. This requires just several clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage everything related to your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your domain names and for each one of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, using which you can activate, renew or deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so that you won’t end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
