When you register a domain name, you are obliged to supply an authentic home address, email and telephone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anybody can check your information and certain people may not be happy with that fact. Consequently, numerous registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, 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 expressions refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux shared hosting package from our company and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your private data safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign next to each of your domains. Its colour will show you whether a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can add Whois Privacy Protection with only a couple of mouse clicks. In this way, you can protect your private data even if you haven’t enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the web hosting account activation procedure. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service with ease. This requires just several clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can order, renew or remove the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up requesting a service that we can’t provide.
