Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the actual contact details of domain name owners on WHOIS lookup sites. Without such protection, the personal name, address and email account of any domain name owner will be openly accessible. Providing false information upon registration or changing the real info subsequently will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS information must be correct and up to date all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain name registrars as an answer to the growing concerns about possible identity theft. If the protection service is active, the registrar’s contact details will be listed instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is incredibly easy in case you have a hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code TLD that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – if you would like to transfer a given domain to another registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact details with just several clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unauthorized persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by following a few simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account activation process, you can get the service along with the domain name. If you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with us after signing up. Renewing or disabling the service is just as easy and will require just a few clicks of the mouse.
