When you register a domain name, you need to provide a genuine address, email account and phone as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can check your information and a lot of people may not be okay with that fact. Consequently, plenty of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

You can effortlessly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you have registered through our company if you have a website hosting account with us. This can be done through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account, so you will not have to use different systems. In the exact same section where all your registered domain names will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for every domain name whose extension supports the service. The status of this icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a certain domain or not and by clicking that icon you can enable the service in case you have not done so during the registration process. Furthermore, you will also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the same icon and the change will take effect immediately.
