When you register a domain name, you are requested to provide an authentic postal address, email and phone number as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can check your information and lots of people may not be okay with this. As a consequence, numerous companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have ordered a shared web hosting plan from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your private information intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will let you know whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with only a few clicks. Thus, you can shield your personal details even if you haven’t added the service during the web hosting account activation process. 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

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by completing a couple of simple steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain. If you skip this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will take only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
