When you register a domain, you are obliged to give an authentic postal address, email and phone as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can check your info and lots of individuals may not be OK with that fact. Consequently, many domain registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact info 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 Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

If you order a cloud website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support this option. You can register or transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the registration process or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any moment afterwards via the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is remarkably easy – after you sign in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domain names that you have registered with us. For each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will inform you if the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.
