In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain name is registered with must be correct and accurate at all times. Plus, this information is publicly accessible on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may be OK for organizations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since everybody can see their names and their personal email and postal addresses, all the more so in an age when identity theft is not that uncommon. This is why registrars have launched a service that hides the details of their customers without changing them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s activated, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s, if they make a WHOIS inquiry. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your private details with certain country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is astonishingly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting package. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each TLD that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you’d like to transfer a particular domain to another domain registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unsolicited persons.
