Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact info of domain name owners on WHOIS check websites. Without such protection, the name, postal address and email account of any domain owner will be openly accessible. Giving false details during the domain registration procedure or changing the authentic details later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS information must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as an answer to the rising concerns about possible identity theft. If the service is enabled, the domain name registrar’s contact information will be listed instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting
If you have ordered a Linux web hosting from us and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them easily and to keep your personal details safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon to the right of each of your domain names. Its color will inform you if a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with only a few clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can secure your private details even if you haven’t enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the web hosting account order process. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by taking a few simple steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the account order process, you can get the service together with the domain name. If you omit this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or deactivating the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will require just a couple of clicks.
