According to the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain name is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. Plus, this information is freely available on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may be okay for companies, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because everybody can see their names and their personal street and email addresses, all the more so in an age when identity fraud is not that unusual. For this reason, domain registrars have come up with a service that conceals the details of their customers without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s enabled, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they make a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your information with some country-code ones.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you get a shared website hosting package from us, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support this option. You can register or transfer a domain and add Whois Privacy Protection during the registration procedure or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any time later via the Hepsia Control Panel. The procedure is incredibly easy – after you log in, you will need to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through our company. For each of them you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will show you whether the service is active or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently activated.
