Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the authentic contact information of domain registrants on WHOIS lookup websites. Without such protection, the name, address and email account of any domain owner will be openly accessible. Supplying false details during the domain registration procedure or changing the genuine info later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS details must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as an answer to the growing concerns for potential identity theft. If the service is enabled, the registrar’s contact info will be shown instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code extensions that do not.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is very easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting plan. You can do this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll only need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you’d like to transfer a specific domain name to a different registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact details with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by completing a few simple steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the signup process, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you think things over at a later time, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signing up. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will take only several mouse clicks.
