When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide an authentic street 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 registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites too, so anyone can check your details and many individuals may not be happy with this. As a result, numerous companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support this option. You can register/transfer a domain name and add Whois Privacy Protection upon signup or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is incredibly easy – once you sign in, you’ll have to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll notice a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company. For each of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will let you know whether the service is active or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently activated.
