When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply a genuine street address, email and telephone as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can view your info and some individuals may not be OK with that fact. Consequently, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a shared website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names provided that their extensions support this service. You can register/transfer a domain name and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the registration process or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any time later through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is extremely easy – after you log in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through us. For each one of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will tell you whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.
