In accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain is registered with must be valid and accurate at all times. Furthermore, this information is publicly available on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may not be a problem for companies, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since everybody can see their names and their personal street and email addresses, especially in an age when identity theft isn’t that atypical. That is the reason why registrar companies have introduced a service that conceals the details of their customers without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s activated, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s, if they do a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it is still not possible to conceal your private information with some country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is exceptionally easy in case you have a hosting service. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – if you wish to transfer a specific domain to some other company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact info with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthorized individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by completing several simple steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you think things over afterwards, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after the signup process. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will take only a few clicks.
