When you register a domain, you are obliged to give a genuine home address, email account and telephone number as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anybody can view your info and some people may not be delighted with that fact. As a result, many domain name registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux cloud hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them easily and to keep your private data safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol to the right of each of your domains. Its colour will tell you whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can secure your personal details even if you have not added the Whois Privacy Protection service during the signup procedure. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names 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 add our Whois Privacy Protection service with ease. This takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, using which you can order, renew or remove the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up paying for a service that we can’t provide.
