When you register a domain name, you have to give an authentic home address, email account and phone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can view your information and many individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. Consequently, numerous registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can swiftly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you have registered through our company if you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin dashboards. In the exact same section where all your registered domain names will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each and every domain name whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly show you if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a particular domain or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so during the registration process. What’s more, you’ll also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using that same icon and the change will take effect momentarily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a couple of simple steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the signup process, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through 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 our company after the signup process. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will require only several mouse clicks.
