Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the actual contact info of domain registrants on WHOIS web sites. Without protection, the personal name, home address and email account of any domain name owner will be publicly visible. Supplying false info during the domain name registration process or changing the real details subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing his/her ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS info must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain name registrars as an answer to the arising concerns for possible identity fraud. If the protection service is enabled, the domain registrar’s contact details will be shown instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is extremely easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting
. You can do this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you wish to transfer a particular domain to another registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact details with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server
account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This requires only a few clicks of the mouse in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you administer everything connected with your account. This is where you can see all your domain names and for each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can enable, renew or remove the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with gTLD and ccTLD extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this in advance, so that you will not end up buying a service that we cannot provide.
