Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact info of domain registrants on WHOIS websites. Without this service, the name, address and email of any domain registrant will be publicly available. Supplying fake information upon registration or changing the genuine information afterwards will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrars as an answer to the rising concerns for possible identity theft. If the protection service is active, the domain registrar’s contact info will be shown instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is remarkably easy in case you’ve got a shared web hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will only have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each domain that supports the Whois Privacy 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 another domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact details with just a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthorized people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by taking several simple steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you omit this step and you change your mind at a later point in time, you can add the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after signup. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will require just a couple of clicks.
