In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain is registered with must be valid and up to date all the time. In addition, this information is openly available on WHOIS web sites and while this may be OK for companies, it may not be very convenient for individuals, since anyone can view their names and their personal street and email addresses, especially in times when identity theft isn’t that rare. This is the reason why domain registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their clients without changing them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s enabled, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they make a WHOIS inquiry. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic top-level domain name extensions, but it is still not possible to hide your personal info with some country-code extensions.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names if their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection during the account activation procedure or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any time later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is incredibly easy – after you log in, you will have to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you’ve registered with us. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will inform you if the service is activated or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can turn off the service if it is currently active.
