According to the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date all the time. Plus, this information is openly available on WHOIS websites and while this may not be a problem for firms, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, since everyone can view their names and their personal street and email addresses, particularly in times when identity fraud is not that atypical. This is why domain registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their customers without modifying them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. If it’s activated, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner, if they do a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it’s still not possible to hide your information with certain country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud website hosting from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of them easily and to keep your personal details secure. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its color will inform you if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with just a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can shield your personal data even if you haven’t added the Whois Privacy Protection service during the signup process. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
