When you register a domain, you are asked to supply a valid street address, email account and phone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can view your details and lots of people may not be comfortable with this. Consequently, lots of domain name registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is unbelievably easy in case you have a cloud hosting. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you’ll just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code top-level 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 want to transfer a certain domain to a different registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with just several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.
