When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give a valid postal address, email and phone in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can view your details and certain people may not be okay with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is amazingly easy if you have a Linux website hosting package. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, 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 disable it altogether – if you’d like to transfer a certain domain to another domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact info with only several clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unauthorized individuals.
