When you register a domain, you have to provide a valid street address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anybody can check your info and certain people may not be happy with that fact. As a result, a lot of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

You can quickly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you have registered through our company in case you have a shared hosting account with us. This can be done through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account, so you will not need to switch between different admin panels. In the same section where all your active domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain whose extension supports the service. The status of each icon will quickly show you if the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a specific domain or not and by clicking on that icon you can enable the service in case you have not done so during the account activation procedure. Additionally, you will also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using the exact same icon and the change will take effect straight away.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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