What goes into Whois?
Per ICANN regulations, Whois databases store contact info for the owners of all registered domains. Name, address, phone number and email address are all listed. Whois also contains domain availability status, registration/expiration dates and related info. To learn more, visit our Knowledgebase article about Whois. Most domain registrars (Hostingcentre, for example) offer Whois Lookup options, such as the one you find above. Legally, anyone who performs a Whois search can view the stored information. If that makes you stop and wonder about the security of your own private information, please read on below about WhoisGuard privacy protection service.
How can I protect my privacy online?
You might not want your personal contact info to be accessible to anyone who searches the Whois database. We understand. That’s why Hostingcentre provides WhoisGuard privacy protection with every domain registration or transfer. WhoisGuard replaces your contact info with Hostingcentre contact info in the Whois database, so your personal information does not go on public record. WhoisGuard is very affordable, and it’s FREE for life.
Frequently Asked Questions
Using a technology called Virtualization, isolated virtual machines are created. These come with dedicated resources and full root access which gives you all the features and functions of a dedicated server at no additional cost. This is termed as Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting
The three main advantages that come with VPS Hosting are:
Complete Isolation: Your VPS package and its applications remain unaffected irrespective of what another users does on the server
Root Access: This allows you to install any compatible application of your choice
Guaranteed Resources: Irrespective of any situation, the CPU, RAM, HDD and bandwidth that have been allocated to your package will always be available for your applications
VPS hosting sits in the intersection of shared hosting and dedicated servers. Unlike shared hosting, VPS is an isolated environment with dedicated resources, which means you have more processing power and your site loads faster. VPS is best suited for applications that have seasonal traffic spikes or RAM-heavy/CPU-intensive applications. If you are developing a new application that has a complex database and you’re not sure how many visits you’ll get, VPS hosting is the affordable option to start with before you upgrade to a dedicated server
