When you register a domain name, you need to provide a genuine home address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anyone can view your details and lots of people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of domain registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is very easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud package. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you will simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a certain domain to some other domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact info with only several clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains in several easy steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the signup procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after the signup process. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take only a couple of mouse clicks.
