When you register a domain name, you have to provide an authentic address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anyone can check your details and certain people may not be OK with this. As a consequence, numerous companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains if their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the registration process or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards via the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is astonishingly easy – after you log in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll notice a list of all the domains that you have registered through our company. For each of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will tell you if the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can turn off the service if it is currently active.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without difficulty. This requires just several clicks of the mouse in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you administer everything connected with your account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, using which you can order, renew or deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific domain name extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you will not end up purchasing a service that we can’t provide.
