Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the genuine contact information of domain name registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without such protection, the name, postal address and email account of any domain name registrant will be freely accessible. Supplying false information during the domain registration procedure or altering the authentic details at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as a response to the growing concerns about possible identity fraud. If the protection service is enabled, the domain name registrar’s contact details will be listed instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is stunningly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you want to transfer a certain domain to some other registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact information with just a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthorized people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is extremely easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain name is registered through our company, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package. In case a specific generic or country-code domain name is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you will see a mini logo to the right of that domain. To enable the service, you’ll need to click on it. In the exact same way, you can also renew or remove the service. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the account order procedure too, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we’ll offer you the chance to add it to any of your domain names later in case you change your mind and decide to conceal your personal information from the public after you have already created the account.
