Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact info of domain registrants on WHOIS check websites. Without this service, the name, home address and email account of any domain name registrant will be openly available. Supplying fake information upon registration or changing the authentic info at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing his/her domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS information must be correct and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as a response to the rising concerns about potential identity fraud. If the protection service is enabled, the domain registrar’s contact details will appear instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is remarkably easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting package. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, 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 Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you want to transfer a certain domain to some other domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact info with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a few easy steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the signup process, you can get the service together with the domain. If you omit this step and you think things over at a later time, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register with us after signing up. Renewing or removing the service is just as easy and will take only a few clicks.
