Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact information of domain name registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without such protection, the personal name, postal address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly visible. Giving false info during the domain name registration process or changing the authentic information later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS details must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain registrars as a response to the arising concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is enabled, the registrar company’s contact information will be displayed instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have ordered a Linux cloud web hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your private information intact. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon to the right of each of your domains. Its colour will let you know if a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with just a couple of mouse clicks. In this way, you can secure your personal details even if you haven’t enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the web hosting account activation process. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This requires just a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you manage everything connected with your semi-dedicated account. This is the place where you can see all your domain names and for each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can activate, renew or deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so you won’t end up purchasing a service that we can’t provide.
