Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the authentic contact details of domain name registrants on WHOIS websites. Without such protection, the personal name, street address and email account of any domain name owner will be freely visible. Providing false information during the domain registration procedure or altering the real info later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS info must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as an answer to the growing concerns for potential identity theft. If the service is enabled, the registrar’s contact details will appear instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code extensions that do not.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is exceptionally easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the 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” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain 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 – in case you would like to transfer a particular domain name to a different domain registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact details with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.
