Whois Privacy Protection
Whois Privacy Protection is rather helpful if you'd like to protect your private information. Discover more about its major advantages.
Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact details of domain name registrants on WHOIS web sites. Without protection, the personal name, home address and email of any domain owner will be freely accessible. Supplying false information during the domain registration procedure or changing the real information later will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing his/her ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS details must be valid and up to date all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrars as a response to the rising concerns for possible identity fraud. If the protection service is activated, the registrar’s contact info will be shown 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 don’t.

In case you omit this step and you think things over at a later time, you can order the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via 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 domains that you register with our company after the signup procedure.
