When you register a domain name, you have to supply a genuine home address, email and telephone as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can check your details and a lot of individuals may not be okay with this. As a consequence, many registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux shared hosting plan from our company and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your private info intact. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo next to each of your domains. Its color will tell you if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can protect your personal details even if you haven’t added the Whois Privacy Protection service during the registration procedure. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can add our Whois Privacy Protection service without any difficulty. This takes just a few clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage everything associated with your semi-dedicated account. This is the place where you can see all your domains and for each one of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can order, renew or remove the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code domain name extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
