When you register a domain name, you have to supply an authentic home address, email and telephone as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can view your info and certain individuals may not be okay with this. As a consequence, numerous registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view 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 expressions refer to the very same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names as long as their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection during the signup process or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any moment later through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is incredibly easy – after you sign in, you’ll need to go to the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through us. For each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, 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 disable the service if it is currently enabled.

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 domain names by completing several easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account order procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you change your mind afterwards, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through our company after signup. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as simple and will take only a few clicks.
