In accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain is registered with must be valid and accurate all the time. Furthermore, this information is freely visible on WHOIS sites and while this may not be a problem for organizations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since anybody can see their names and their personal postal and email addresses, especially in times when identity theft isn’t that atypical. That is the reason why registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their customers without editing them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s active, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they do a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it’s still impossible to conceal your private info with certain country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is remarkably easy if you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll just need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you’d like to transfer a certain domain name to another domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact details with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service effortlessly. This takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything related to your account. This is the place where you can see all your domains and for each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can enable, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
