When you register a domain name, you have to give a valid postal address, email account and phone as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can check your info and some people may not be comfortable with that fact. As a result, many registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting
You can swiftly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you have registered through our company if you have a shared hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account, so you won’t have to switch between different user interfaces. In the same section where all your active domains will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain whose extension supports this service. The status of this icon will quickly let you know whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a certain domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so during the signup process. Plus, 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 update will take effect straight away.
