Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact details of domain name owners on WHOIS lookup sites. Without this service, the personal name, postal address and email account of any domain owner will be openly accessible. Providing fake details during the domain registration procedure or changing the authentic info later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing his/her domain ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrar companies as a response to the growing concerns about possible identity theft. If the service is active, the domain registrar’s contact details will show up instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that do not.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is very easy if you have a cloud hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it completely – if you’d like to transfer a certain domain name to another domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact info with just a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited people.
