When you register a domain, you are asked to give a genuine address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can check your details and lots of individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a result, lots of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is incredibly easy if you have a Linux shared web hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll just have to go to 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 Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it altogether – if you would like to transfer a specific domain to some other domain registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact details with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthorized people.
