Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact information of domain registrants on WHOIS check websites. Without protection, the personal name, address and email account of any domain name owner will be publicly accessible. Giving false information upon registration or altering the real info subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing his/her ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as an answer to the rising concerns for possible identity fraud. If the protection service is activated, the registrar’s contact info will be displayed instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve ordered a Linux 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 personal information secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button to the right of each of your domain names. Its colour will show you whether a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only several clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can shield your personal info even if you have not enabled the service during the web hosting account activation procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names in a few simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account activation procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you omit this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after signing up. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will take only several clicks of the mouse.
