Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the actual contact details of domain registrants on WHOIS check web sites. Without protection, the name, street address and email of any domain owner will be freely accessible. Supplying false information during the registration procedure or altering the authentic information at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing his/her domain ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS information must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns about possible identity theft. If the protection service is enabled, the domain registrar’s contact info will show up instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code ones that do not.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is amazingly easy in case you’ve got a website hosting. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you’ll just need to go to 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 generic or country-code domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – if you wish to transfer a given domain to some other company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact details with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited people.
