Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact details of domain registrants on WHOIS lookup sites. Without protection, the personal name, address and email of any domain name owner will be freely available. Giving fake information during the domain registration procedure or changing the authentic details later will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain name registrars as an answer to the rising concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is active, the domain name registrar’s contact information will be listed instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you get a shared website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains if their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the registration process or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is really easy – after you log in, you’ll need to go to the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domain names that you have registered through us. For each one of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will inform you whether the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently activated.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you wish to conceal the contact details associated with your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the registration process or at any moment afterwards through your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a few clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each domain. In the same manner, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or remove it – in case you’d like to transfer a domain to some other registrar and you need the real mailbox associated with the domain name to be visible.
