Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact details of domain name owners on WHOIS check sites. Without this service, the personal name, address and email account of any domain name owner will be freely available. Giving false info during the domain name registration procedure or altering the authentic information at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS information must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrar companies as an answer to the arising concerns for possible identity fraud. If the service is activated, the registrar’s contact details will be displayed instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code ones that don’t.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is stunningly easy if you’ve got a shared hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will just need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a specific domain name to some other company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthenticated people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by completing a few simple steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the signup process, you can get the service together with the domain. In case you skip this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names 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 couple of clicks.
