In accordance with the policy approved 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. In addition, this information is freely visible on WHOIS lookup web sites and while this may be OK for corporations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since everybody can view their names and their personal home and email addresses, especially in times when identity fraud isn’t that rare. That’s why registrar companies have launched a service that hides the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s enabled, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner, if they perform a WHOIS lookup. 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 some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve ordered a Linux shared hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your private info intact. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign next to each of your domain names. Its color will inform you if a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can protect your private data even if you haven’t enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the web hosting account order procedure. 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 Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a couple of easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain name during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you skip this step and you think things over afterwards, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via 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 with our company after signing up. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
