When you register a domain name, you are requested to supply a genuine street address, email account and phone number as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can see your information and lots of individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. Consequently, many registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

If you have ordered a cloud hosting from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your private data secure.

Its colour will tell you if a domain name is Whois Privacy Protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with only a couple of mouse clicks. Thus, you can secure your private info even if you have not added the service upon signup. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
