When you register a domain, you are asked to provide a genuine postal address, email account and telephone 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 registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS websites too, so anybody can see your info and lots of people may not be delighted with this. As a consequence, a lot of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can quickly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you have registered with our company in case you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us. This can be done through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account, so you will not need to log in and out of different platforms. In the same section where all your active domains will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain whose extension supports this option. The status of that icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a specific domain or not and by clicking on that icon you can enable the service in case you have not done so during the registration process. Plus, you will also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the update will take effect straight away.
