Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the genuine contact information of domain registrants on WHOIS websites. Without this service, the name, address and email of any domain name registrant will be publicly accessible. Giving false information during the domain name registration procedure or changing the authentic info at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their domain ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS info 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 for potential identity theft. If the service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact information will show up instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names if their extensions support this option. You can register or transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the account activation procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any moment later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is very easy – once you sign in, you’ll need to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will show you whether the service is active or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently enabled.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains in a few easy steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the signup process, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register with our company after the signup process. Renewing or removing the service is just as easy and will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks.
