Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact information of domain registrants on WHOIS check web sites. Without such protection, the personal name, postal address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly accessible. Providing fake details during the domain registration process or changing the genuine details subsequently will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their ownership of the domain name. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns about potential identity theft. If the protection service is activated, the domain name registrar’s contact info will appear instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve ordered a cloud plan from our company and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your private info safe. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its colour will tell you whether a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with only several clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can protect your personal info even if you have not added the Whois Privacy Protection service upon signup. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’d like to conceal the contact information for your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any moment later through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be added with a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you have registered through our company will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign next to each domain. In the exact same way, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or shut it off – if you wish to transfer a domain name to a different registrar and you need the actual email associated with the domain to be visible.
