When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give an authentic street address, email account and phone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anybody can check your details and certain individuals may not be comfortable with this. As a result, plenty of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names 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 do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can swiftly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company in case you have a cloud hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards. In the same section where all your active domain names will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain whose extension supports this service. The status of that icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a particular domain or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so during the account activation process. You’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the same icon and the change will take effect immediately.
