When you register a domain, you have to give a genuine postal address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS sites too, so anyone can check your details and some individuals may not be happy with that fact. As a result, lots of domain registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve ordered a Linux cloud hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your personal data intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button next to each of your domain names. Its color will tell you if a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with just several clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can shield your private information even if you haven’t activated the service during the registration procedure. You will 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

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This takes just several mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything related to your 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” sign, using which you can enable, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up requesting a service that we can’t provide.
