When you register a domain, you are asked to supply a valid address, email account and phone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can view your info and many people may not be delighted with this. As a consequence, a lot of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can quickly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company if you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be done through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account, so you will not need to log in and out of different admin consoles. In the very same section where all your active domains will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain whose extension supports this service. The status of this icon will quickly let you know if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a given domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can activate the service in case you haven’t done so during the account activation process. You will also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using the same icon and the update will take effect instantly.
