In accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain name is registered with must be correct and accurate at all times. Besides, this information is publicly accessible on WHOIS web sites and while this may be OK for firms, it may not be very convenient for individuals, since anybody can view their names and their personal email and street addresses, particularly in times when identity fraud is not that infrequent. That’s why domain registrars have come up with a service that conceals the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is active, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they perform a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your information with certain country-code ones.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support this option. You can register or transfer a domain name and add Whois Privacy Protection during the registration procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment later through the Hepsia Control Panel. The procedure is astonishingly easy – once you sign in, you’ll need to go to the Registered Domains section where you will notice a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each of them you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will tell you whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can turn off the service if it is currently activated.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Enabling Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is remarkably easy in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain name is registered through our company, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated package. In case a specific generic or country-code top-level domain name supports Whois Privacy Protection, you will see a tiny logo on its right. To activate the service, you will need to click on it. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the account order process as well, but since the service is optional, we’ll offer you the chance to add it to any of your domains at a later time if you change your mind and opt to hide your private information from the public eye after you have already ordered the account.
