Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact information of domain owners on WHOIS web sites. Without such protection, the name, home address and email account of any domain name registrant will be freely visible. Giving false information during the domain name registration procedure or altering the genuine information at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS info must be correct and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns about possible identity fraud. If the protection service is enabled, the registrar company’s contact information will appear instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is surprisingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud package. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you’d like to transfer a particular domain name to some other domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact information with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthorized people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by taking a couple of easy steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account order procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. If you omit this step and you think things over afterwards, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or disabling the service is just as easy and will take no more than a few clicks.
