When you register a domain name, you are asked to supply an authentic address, email account and telephone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS websites as well, so anyone can view your details and many individuals may not be delighted with this. Consequently, lots of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from us, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains on the condition that their extensions support the service. You can register or transfer a domain name and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the signup procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is remarkably easy – after you sign in, you’ll need to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through our company. For each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will let you know if the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently active.
