When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give an authentic street address, email and telephone as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can see your info and some individuals may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, a lot of registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Currently, 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 option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

If you have ordered a hosting plan from us and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your personal info secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo to the right of each of your domain names. Its color will let you know if a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with only a couple of clicks. Thus, you can shield your personal information even if you have not enabled the service during the hosting account order procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

Activating Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is incredibly easy in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain name is registered through us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server plan. If a specific generic or country-specific domain is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you will notice a tiny icon to the right of that domain. To activate the service, you’ll have to click on it. In the exact same way, you can also renew or remove the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name upon registration too, but since the service is optional, we’ll offer you the opportunity to add it to any of your domain names later if you change your mind and choose to conceal your personal details from the general public after you’ve already created the semi-dedicated account.
