When you register a domain, you are obliged to give a valid postal address, email and telephone as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anyone can check your info and a lot of people may not be OK with that fact. As a result, lots of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s info 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 exact same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names provided that their extensions support this service. You can register/transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection upon registration or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards via the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is really easy – after you sign in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domain names that you have registered with our company. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will let you know if the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently enabled.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains in a couple of simple steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can activate 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 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 signup. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will require only a couple of clicks.
