Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact details of domain name registrants on WHOIS sites. Without protection, the name, street address and email of any domain owner will be openly accessible. Supplying false info during the domain name registration process or changing the real info later will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS information must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as a response to the growing concerns for possible identity fraud. If the service is active, the domain name registrar’s contact information will be shown instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code extensions that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can easily activate Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company if you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us. This can be done through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account, so you will not need to switch between different Control Panels. In the same section where all your active domains will be displayed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain name whose extension supports this service. The status of each icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a given domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can activate the service in case you have not done so during the signup procedure. In addition, you will also be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using the very same icon and the change will take effect instantly.
