Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact info of domain name registrants on WHOIS check websites. Without such protection, the name, address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly available. Supplying fake information during the domain registration procedure or changing the authentic details at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS info must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrar companies as an answer to the increasing concerns about potential identity fraud. If the service is enabled, the registrar company’s contact information will appear instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is really easy if you’ve got a cloud hosting plan. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will only have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a certain domain to a different registrar company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact info with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by following several simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account activation procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you change your mind afterwards, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signup. Renewing or disabling the service is just as easy and will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
