When you register a domain, you are required to give a valid street address, email and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can check your info and lots of individuals may not be pleased with this. As a consequence, many domain name registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service easily. This requires just several mouse clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything associated with your account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, using which you can order, renew or disable the Whois Privacy Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with gTLD and ccTLD extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so that you won’t end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
