Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the genuine contact information of domain owners on WHOIS websites. Without such protection, the name, street address and email account of any domain name registrant will be freely accessible. Providing false information during the domain registration process or altering the real details subsequently will simply 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 at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrars as an answer to the growing concerns for possible identity fraud. If the protection service is active, the registrar company’s contact info will appear instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is amazingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you want to transfer a given domain to some other domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact details with only a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to conceal the contact details associated with your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either upon registration or at any moment later via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a couple of clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you’ve registered with us will be displayed alphabetically. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” button next to each domain. In the same fashion, you can also renew the service or remove it – if you’d like to transfer a domain to some other domain name registrar and you need the actual mailbox associated with the domain name to be visible.
