In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date all the time. Besides, this info is openly accessible on WHOIS sites and while this may be OK for organizations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, since anybody can view their names and their personal street and email addresses, especially in times when identity fraud is not that unusual. This is why registrar companies have introduced a service that conceals the details of their customers without altering them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is activated, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they do a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it’s still not possible to conceal your information with certain country-code extensions.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains on the condition that their extensions support this service. You can register/transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection during the registration process or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any time later via the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is exceptionally easy – once you log in, you’ll have to visit the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company. For each one of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will show you whether the service is activated 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 enabled.
