When you register a domain name, you are requested to supply a valid street address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anybody can view your information and some people may not be okay with this. As a result, numerous registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see 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 terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve ordered a web hosting plan from us and you have 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 personal data secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its color will tell you whether a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with just several mouse clicks. In this way, you can safeguard your personal data even if you have not enabled 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 Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This takes just several mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you administer everything connected with your account. This is where you can see all your domain names and for each one of them you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, using which you can order, renew or deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific domain extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you won’t end up requesting a service that we can’t provide.
