Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact details of domain registrants on WHOIS check web sites. Without such protection, the personal name, address and email account of any domain name registrant will be openly available. Supplying fake information during the domain name registration process or changing the real information subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS info must be valid and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrars as a response to the rising concerns for possible identity theft. If the protection service is enabled, the registrar’s contact info will show up instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through us is exceptionally easy if you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll only have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you want to transfer a specific domain name to another company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact info with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unsolicited persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have 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 any effort. This takes only a few mouse clicks 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 active domain names and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can activate, renew or remove the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code TLD extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you won’t end up ordering a service that we can’t provide.
