When you register a domain name, you are required to give an authentic postal address, email account 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, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can view your info and certain people may not be happy with that fact. Consequently, numerous registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view 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 expressions refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains 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 Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is astonishingly easy if you’ve got a Linux hosting plan. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you’ll just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you would like to transfer a certain domain name to some other registrar company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with only a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited people.
