In accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. At the same time, this info is freely visible on WHOIS lookup web sites and while this may be okay for companies, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since everyone can view their names and their personal email and postal addresses, especially in times when identity theft isn’t that unusual. For this reason, registrar companies have come up with a service that conceals the details of their customers without editing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is activated, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they do a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your private details with certain country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have ordered a cloud hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your personal details safe. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its color will let you know if a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with just a few clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your personal information even if you have not activated the Whois Privacy Protection service during the registration 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’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains in several easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the signup process, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register with our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take no more than a few clicks.
