Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the actual contact details of domain registrants on WHOIS sites. Without such protection, the name, street address and email account of any domain owner will be publicly accessible. Supplying false details during the registration procedure or changing the genuine details later will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing his/her ownership of the domain. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS info must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain name registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns for possible identity fraud. If the service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact information will be shown instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code extensions that don’t.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is remarkably easy if you’ve got a cloud web hosting. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you’ll simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – if you wish to transfer a particular domain to a different registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact info with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names in several simple steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the signup procedure, you can get the service together with the domain. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will require only a couple of mouse clicks.
