When you register a domain, you are required to give 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, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can see your information and some people may not be satisfied with this. As a result, lots of domain registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is unbelievably easy if you’ve got a web hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – in case you wish to transfer a given domain to another domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact information with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you want to hide the contact details for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any time afterwards through our Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be added with a couple of clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domain names that you have registered through our company will be listed in alphabetical order. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button next to each domain name. In the exact same way, you can also renew the service or turn it off – in case you want to transfer a domain to another registrar company and you need the actual mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
