When you register a domain, you are asked to give a genuine postal address, email and telephone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS sites as well, so anybody can check your details and many people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, lots of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Currently, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is really easy in case you have a shared website hosting. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you will simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each gTLD or ccTLD that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a certain domain name to a different domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact info with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This requires only a few mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer everything connected with your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your domain names and for each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, using which you can enable, renew or remove the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up paying for a service that we can’t provide.
