When you register a domain name, you are asked to give a valid street address, email and telephone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can check your details and a lot of individuals may not be OK with that fact. Consequently, many registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. As of now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

You can effortlessly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you have registered through our company if you have a website hosting account with us. This can be done through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account itself, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin consoles. In the same section where all your active domain names will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain name whose extension supports this service. The status of this icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a given domain or not and by clicking on that icon you can activate the service if you haven’t done so during the registration procedure. Furthermore, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the change will take effect momentarily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by following several easy steps.

This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register with our company after signing up. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will require only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
