When you register a domain, you need to provide an authentic address, email account and telephone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anybody can check your information and certain individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, numerous registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is remarkably easy if you’ve got a Linux shared hosting. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you’ll just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you would like to transfer a certain domain name to a different registrar company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact details with just several clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unsolicited persons.
