Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact details of domain owners on WHOIS lookup web sites. Without this service, the name, postal address and email of any domain registrant will be openly accessible. Giving fake info during the domain name registration procedure or altering the real information subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS details must be correct and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrars as a response to the increasing concerns about possible identity theft. If the protection service is active, the domain name registrar’s contact information will show up instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is astonishingly easy if you have a shared hosting. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll only need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, 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 completely – in case you would like to transfer a specific domain to a different domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact information with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthorized people.
