Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the actual contact details of domain registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without protection, the name, street address and email account of any domain owner will be freely accessible. Supplying fake information during the domain name registration process or changing the authentic info afterwards will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing his/her ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain name registrars as a response to the growing concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is activated, the domain name registrar’s contact information will be shown 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 extensions that do not.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with us is extremely easy in case you’ve got a cloud plan. 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 the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each top-level domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you would like to transfer a certain domain to another company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with only several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized people.
