When you register a domain name, you are required to provide an authentic home address, email and phone as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can view your info and lots of people may not be OK with that fact. As a result, numerous registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names 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 Web Hosting

If you’ve ordered a web hosting from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your private info safe. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign to the right of each of your domain names. Its colour will inform you whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with just several clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can protect your personal information even if you have not activated the service during the hosting account activation process. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This takes just a few clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage everything connected with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your active domain names and for each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can enable, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up purchasing a service that we can’t provide.
