According to the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain name is registered with must be valid and accurate all the time. What’s more, this information is openly available on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may not be a problem for firms, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since anyone can view their names and their personal email and postal addresses, particularly in an age when identity theft isn’t that uncommon. That’s the reason why domain registrars have introduced a service that hides the details of their clients without changing them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. If it is active, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s, if they make a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still impossible to hide your details with some country-code ones.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can swiftly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you’ve registered with our company in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting
account with us. This can be done through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you will not need to go through different platforms. In the exact same section where all your registered domains will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly let you know whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a given domain or not and by clicking that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so during the signup process. In addition, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the update will take effect immediately.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server
package from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by completing several easy steps. In case you register or transfer a domain during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you skip this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through our company after the signup process. Renewing or removing the service is just as easy and will take just several clicks.
