When you register a domain, you are required to give a genuine postal address, email account and phone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS websites as well, so anyone can see your information and lots of people may not be OK with this. As a consequence, numerous domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains 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 Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains provided that their extensions support this option. You can register or transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection during the signup procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any time later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is amazingly easy – after you log in, you will need to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you have registered with us. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will let you know if the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can disable the service if it is currently active.
