Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact information of domain owners on WHOIS check web sites. Without protection, the name, street address and email of any domain name owner will be openly visible. Supplying false info during the domain registration procedure or altering the genuine information afterwards will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing his/her domain ownership rights. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS details must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as a response to the rising concerns about possible identity fraud. If the protection service is active, the registrar company’s contact info will be displayed instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is surprisingly easy if you have a Linux cloud hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each gTLD or ccTLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – if you want to transfer a certain domain to another registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact information with only a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unsolicited persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’d like to conceal the contact info associated with your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any moment later through your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is optional and can be added with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you’ve registered with our company will be displayed alphabetically. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo to the right of each domain. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or turn it off – if you’d like to transfer a domain to a different registrar and you need the real email associated with the domain to be visible.
