Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact information of domain name registrants on WHOIS lookup sites. Without protection, the name, address and email account of any domain name owner will be openly available. Providing fake info during the domain registration procedure or changing the genuine info subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing his/her ownership rights. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS details must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain registrars as a response to the increasing concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is activated, the domain name registrar’s contact details will appear instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains on the condition that their extensions support this service. You can register/transfer a domain and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the registration process or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any time afterwards via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is surprisingly easy – once you log in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will notice a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through our company. For each one of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will let you know if the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.
