According to the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain is registered with must be valid and up to date at all times. At the same time, this info is publicly accessible on WHOIS websites and while this may be OK for organizations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, since anybody can see their names and their personal home and email addresses, particularly in times when identity theft is not that unusual. That’s the reason why registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their customers without editing them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. If it is active, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they perform a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it is still not possible to conceal your private information with some country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is incredibly easy if you’ve got a shared website hosting. You can do this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – if you’d like to transfer a specific domain name to some other domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact info with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unsolicited persons.
