According to the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain is registered with must be correct and accurate all the time. Plus, this info is openly accessible on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may not be a problem for firms, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anybody can view their names and their personal email and home addresses, particularly in times when identity fraud is not that infrequent. For this reason, domain name registrars have introduced a service that hides the details of their clients without editing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it is active, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still not possible to conceal your private information with some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is incredibly easy if you have a Linux cloud web hosting. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you want to transfer a specific domain name to another registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited persons.
