When you register a domain name, you are requested to give a genuine postal address, email and telephone as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can see your information and some people may not be delighted with that fact. Consequently, many domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting package from us, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names as long as their extensions support this option. You can register or transfer a domain name and add Whois Privacy Protection upon signup or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is unbelievably easy – once you sign in, you’ll have to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domain names that you have registered through us. For each one of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will inform you if the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently enabled.
