When you register a domain, you are asked to give an authentic postal address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS websites as well, so anybody can check your details and some people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, many companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Now, 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 the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

You can swiftly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you’ve registered through our company in case you’ve got a hosting account with us. This can be done through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels. In the exact same section where all your registered domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain name whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly show you if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a certain domain or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service if you have not done so during the account activation procedure. You’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the exact same icon and the update will take effect straight away.
