According to the policies 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 all the time. Furthermore, this info is openly available on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may not be a problem for firms, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since everyone can see their names and their personal home and email addresses, all the more so in an age when identity theft isn’t that atypical. That’s the reason why domain name registrars have introduced a service that hides the details of their customers without modifying them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s activated, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they do a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your personal information with certain country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is really easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared package. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you’ll simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on 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 Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it completely – in case you want to transfer a specific domain name to another registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited individuals.
