In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain name is registered with must be correct and accurate all the time. Besides, this information is freely visible on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may not be a problem for corporations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anyone can see their names and their personal email and home addresses, especially in times when identity theft isn’t that atypical. That is the reason why domain registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their customers without editing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s activated, people will view 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 domain name extensions, but it is still impossible to hide your personal information with some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domains by taking a couple of easy steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the signup process, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you think things over later, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register with our company after the signup process. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will take just a few clicks.
