When you register a domain, you are requested to provide an authentic home address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can view your details and certain individuals may not be delighted with that fact. As a result, a lot of registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names provided that their extensions support the service. You can register or transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the account activation procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any time later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is incredibly easy – after you sign in, you will have to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll notice a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered through us. For each one of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will show you if the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This requires just a few clicks of the mouse in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you manage everything related to your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can order, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code domain name extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
