Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact information of domain owners on WHOIS websites. Without protection, the personal name, address and email of any domain owner will be freely available. Providing false info during the registration process or altering the authentic details at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS info must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain name registrars as a response to the growing concerns about potential identity theft. If the service is activated, the domain name registrar’s contact information will appear instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code ones that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting
You can easily enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you have registered through our company if you have a website hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account, so you will not have to go through different systems. In the exact same section where all your registered domains will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each and every domain whose extension supports this option. The status of that icon will quickly let you know if the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a specific domain or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service in case you have not done so during the signup procedure. What’s more, you will also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using the exact same icon and the change will take effect straight away.
