According to the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. Plus, this information is openly accessible on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may be okay for firms, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anyone can view their names and their personal street and email addresses, especially in times when identity theft isn’t that rare. That is the reason why domain name registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their clients without editing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is active, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they perform a WHOIS lookup. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your info with some country-code extensions.
Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is extremely easy in case you have a hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you’ll only have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, 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 service or disable it altogether – if you would like to transfer a specific domain to another registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with only several clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited people.
