In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. Furthermore, this information is publicly available on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may not be a problem for organizations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, since everyone can see their names and their personal email and street addresses, all the more so in times when identity fraud isn’t that rare. For this reason, registrar companies have launched a service that conceals the details of their clients 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 those of the domain owner, if they perform a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic Top-Level Domain extensions, but it’s still impossible to hide your personal info with some country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is amazingly easy if you have a cloud web hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – in case you’d like to transfer a specific domain name to some other registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact information with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unauthenticated persons.
