Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the actual contact details of domain owners on WHOIS web sites. Without protection, the name, home address and email account of any domain name registrant will be freely accessible. Supplying false details during the domain 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 his/her domain ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS information must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain registrars as a response to the rising concerns for possible identity theft. If the service is enabled, the domain name registrar’s contact details will appear instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have ordered a cloud hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your private info secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its color will tell you whether a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with only several clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your private information even if you haven’t enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the web hosting account activation procedure. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Activating Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is very easy in case you have a semi-dedicated server. If the domain name is registered through us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server package. If a specific generic or country-specific top-level domain name is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you will see a mini button on its right. To activate the Whois Privacy Protection service, you’ll have to click on it. In the exact same manner, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the registration process as well, but since the service is optional, we will offer you the chance to add it to any of your domains later in case you change your mind and decide to conceal your personal info from the public after you’ve already ordered the semi-dedicated account.
