When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide a genuine address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anyone can check your info and certain individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, a lot of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains 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 package from our company, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support this service. You can register/transfer a domain name and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the signup process or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any time later through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is surprisingly easy – once you log in, you will have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will tell you whether the service is activated or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.
