When you register a domain name, you are required to provide a valid home address, email and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anybody can see your info and certain people may not be satisfied with this. As a result, plenty of domain registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is incredibly easy in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered through our company, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated package. In case a given generic or country-code domain supports Whois Privacy Protection, you’ll notice a small logo on the right-hand side of that domain. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you’ll have to click on it. In the very same manner, you can also renew or disable the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the signup process as well, but since the service is optional, we will give you the possibility to add it to any of your domain names later in case you change your mind and decide to hide your private information from the general public after you’ve already created the semi-dedicated account.
