Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the authentic contact details of domain name owners on WHOIS sites. Without such protection, the name, postal address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly available. Supplying fake info upon registration or altering the authentic details later will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS info must be correct and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as a response to the increasing concerns for possible identity theft. If the protection service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact information will be listed instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code ones that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Web Hosting
You can swiftly activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you have registered through our company in case you’ve got a web hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you won’t have to log in and out of different interfaces. In the very same section where all your registered domain names will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each and every domain name whose extension supports this option. The status of that icon will quickly show you if the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a specific domain or not and by clicking that icon you can enable the service in case you haven’t done so during the account activation procedure. You’ll also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the very same icon and the change will take effect straight away.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a couple of simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the signup procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. 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, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register with us after signup. Renewing or deactivating the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will require only a couple of mouse clicks.
