When you register a domain name, you need to provide a genuine postal address, email and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can check your info and certain people may not be OK with this. Consequently, many registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve ordered a shared website hosting plan from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any difficulty 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” button on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its colour will show you whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with just a few clicks. Thus, you can shield your personal information even if you haven’t added the service upon registration. 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 Servers

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by completing a few easy steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the signup procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with our company after signing up. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will require just several clicks.
