When you register a domain name, you are obliged to supply a genuine address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can see your info and a lot of individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a result, lots of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Nowadays, 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.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This takes only a few mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything related to your semi-dedicated account. This is where you can see all your registered domains and for each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, using which you can enable, renew or disable the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you will not end up purchasing a service that we can’t provide.
