When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give a genuine street address, email account and phone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can see your information and certain people may not be comfortable with this. As a result, plenty of domain registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you order a shared web hosting package from our company, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names as long as their extensions support this option. You can register/transfer a domain name and enable Whois Privacy Protection upon registration or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any time later through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is extremely easy – after you log in, you’ll have to visit the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domains that you have registered with us. For each of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will inform you if the service is activated or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can turn off the service if it is currently enabled.
