When you register a domain, you are asked to give a genuine postal address, email and phone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check websites too, so anybody can view your info and some people may not be okay with that fact. Consequently, lots of domain registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names if their extensions support this option.

The process is remarkably easy – after you sign in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll notice a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will tell you if the service is activated or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can turn off the service if it is currently enabled.
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 name is registered with our company, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server plan. If a particular generic or country-specific domain is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you’ll see a tiny sign on its right. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you’ll need to click on it. In the same fashion, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the account activation procedure as well, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we will offer you the opportunity to add it to any of your domain names later if you change your mind and decide to conceal your private details from the general public after you’ve already created the account.
