Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the actual contact info of domain registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without this service, the name, address and email account of any domain name owner will be freely accessible. Providing false information upon registration or altering the authentic details at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS info 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 rising concerns for potential identity fraud. If the service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact details will show up instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code ones that don’t.

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domain names on the condition that their extensions support this option.

The procedure is very easy – once you log in, you will need to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll see a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each of them you’ll notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will inform you if the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently activated.
