In accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain name is registered with must be valid and up to date all the time. Besides, this information is publicly accessible on WHOIS sites and while this may not be a problem for companies, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anyone can see their names and their personal email and street addresses, especially in an age when identity fraud isn’t that rare. For this reason, registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their customers without altering them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. If it is activated, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s, if they perform a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic top-level domain name extensions, but it’s still impossible to hide your personal details with some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is amazingly easy in case you have a cloud web hosting plan. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – in case you would like to transfer a specific domain to a different registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact details with only several clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unsolicited people.
