Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the actual contact info of domain name registrants on WHOIS websites. Without protection, the name, address and email account of any domain registrant will be publicly available. Supplying fake info during the registration process or altering the genuine details afterwards will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS info must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as an answer to the growing concerns for possible identity theft. If the service is enabled, the registrar’s contact details will be listed instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code extensions that don’t.

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through us is stunningly easy in case you have a shared hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you will just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you’d like to transfer a given domain to another registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact information with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.
