When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide a genuine address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS websites as well, so anybody can see your info and a lot of people may not be satisfied with this. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is incredibly easy in case you have a web hosting plan. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you will just need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it completely – if you would like to transfer a certain domain name to a different registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact details with only a few clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.

This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with us after signing up.
