According to the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain name is registered with must be valid and accurate all the time. Plus, this information is freely accessible on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may be OK for corporations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because everyone can view their names and their personal email and home addresses, all the more so in an age when identity theft isn’t that unusual. This is the reason why registrars have come up with a service that hides the details of their customers without changing them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is active, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS enquiry. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it’s still not possible to conceal your personal information with certain country-code extensions.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is remarkably easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting package. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will simply have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – if you wish to transfer a particular domain name to a different domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with only several clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited people.
