Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact info of domain owners on WHOIS lookup websites. Without this service, the personal name, home address and email of any domain name owner will be publicly accessible. Providing fake info during the domain name registration procedure or changing the authentic info subsequently will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS info must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as a response to the rising concerns for possible identity theft. If the service is enabled, the registrar’s contact information will be displayed instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting package from our company, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains provided that their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection upon registration or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is really easy – once you log in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domain names that you have registered with us. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will let you know whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently enabled.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is where you can see all your registered domain names and for each of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can order, renew or remove the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific top-level domain name extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you won’t end up requesting a service that we can’t provide.
