In accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain name is registered with must be valid and accurate all the time. Plus, this info is publicly available on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may be okay for organizations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because everybody can see their names and their personal email and postal addresses, especially in times when identity fraud isn’t that rare. This is the reason why domain name registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their clients without altering them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s active, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s, if they perform a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it’s still impossible to hide your personal info with some country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is extremely easy in case you have a web hosting. You can do this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you would like to transfer a certain domain to another registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

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 by following several simple steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the account order procedure, you can get the service together with the domain. If you omit this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will take no more than a few mouse clicks.
