According to the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and accurate at all times. Plus, this information is publicly visible on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may not be a problem for corporations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anyone can view their names and their personal email and home addresses, especially in times when identity fraud is not that atypical. This is why domain name registrars have introduced a service that hides the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s active, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your details with some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is astonishingly easy in case you’ve got a cloud service. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each generic or country-code top-level domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – if you would like to transfer a specific domain to some other company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact details with only a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.
