Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the real contact details of domain name registrants on WHOIS check websites. Without such protection, the personal name, street address and email of any domain name registrant will be publicly visible. Providing fake information during the registration process or altering the real details at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their domain ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain registrars as a response to the growing concerns about possible identity theft. If the service is enabled, the domain name registrar’s contact information will appear instead of the domain name 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 Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with us is extremely easy in case you have a Linux cloud hosting package. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a given domain to some other domain registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with only several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthenticated individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can enable our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This requires just several mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you administer everything connected with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each of them you will find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can order, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific domain name extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up requesting a service that we cannot provide.
