Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the authentic contact information of domain name owners on WHOIS websites. Without this service, the personal name, street address and email of any domain name owner will be freely accessible. Giving false details during the registration process or altering the real details later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS details must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain name registrars as a response to the arising concerns about potential identity fraud. If the service is active, the domain name registrar’s contact details will be displayed instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is astonishingly easy if you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – in case you would like to transfer a particular domain name to another domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact details with just several clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized individuals.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is remarkably easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain name is registered through us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package. If a particular generic or country-specific domain name supports Whois Privacy Protection, you’ll see a small symbol to the right of that domain. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you will have to click on it. In the very same way, you can also renew or remove the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the account order process as well, but since the service is optional, we’ll offer you the chance to add it to any of your domains at a later point in time if you think things over and decide to conceal your personal details from the public after you have already created the account.
