When you register a domain, you need to provide an authentic address, email account and telephone as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can view your details and some individuals may not be OK with this. As a result, many companies have launched 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 company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can quickly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account itself, so you won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels. In the same section where all your active domain names will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain name whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a specific domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you haven’t done so during the signup procedure. Moreover, you’ll also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using that same icon and the change will take effect instantaneously.
