Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the real contact information of domain name registrants on WHOIS lookup web sites. Without protection, the personal name, address and email of any domain owner will be freely accessible. Supplying false information during the domain registration process or changing the genuine information afterwards will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing his/her ownership of the domain name. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS information must be valid and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain name registrars as an answer to the arising concerns for potential identity theft. If the protection service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact info will be displayed instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code ones that don’t.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have ordered a cloud package from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any difficulty and to keep your personal data intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will show you if a domain is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can activate Whois Privacy Protection with only a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can secure your personal info even if you have not enabled the Whois Privacy Protection service during the web hosting account activation procedure. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
