According to the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain name is registered with must be valid and up to date at all times. Plus, this information is freely accessible on WHOIS sites and while this may be okay for companies, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since everybody can view their names and their personal email and home addresses, especially in times when identity fraud is not that rare. This is the reason why domain name registrars have introduced a service that hides the details of their clients without editing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s activated, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they make a WHOIS inquiry. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it’s still impossible to hide your info with certain country-code extensions.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains on the condition that their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the account activation process or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any time afterwards through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is very easy – after you log in, you will need to visit the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you’ve registered with our company. For each of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will inform you if the service is activated or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently enabled.
