When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give a valid home address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can view your info and lots of people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, numerous companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud web hosting plan from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any difficulty and to keep your private info safe. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button 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 enable Whois Privacy Protection with just several mouse clicks. Thus, you can protect your personal details even if you haven’t enabled the service upon signup. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
