When you register a domain name, you have to give an authentic street address, email account and telephone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check sites too, so anybody can see your information and a lot of people may not be okay with this. Consequently, many registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

You can swiftly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you’ve registered with our company in case you’ve got a hosting account with us. This can be done through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account, so you won’t have to use different systems. In the exact same section where all your registered domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain name whose extension supports the service. The status of this icon will quickly show you if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a particular domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so during the signup process. Additionally, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the change will take effect right away.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This takes only a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you administer everything related to your semi-dedicated account. This is where you can see all your active domain names and for each one of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, using which you can enable, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific domain extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up buying a service that we cannot provide.
