When you register a domain name, you are required to supply a valid postal address, email account and telephone 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 web sites too, so anybody can check your information and some people may not be comfortable with this. Consequently, many registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve ordered a website hosting plan from us and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your personal details secure. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo next to each of your domains. Its colour will inform you whether a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can shield your private details even if you have not added the service during the registration process. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting 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 domain names and for each of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can enable, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific top-level domain name extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
