WHOIS Protection with XL Web Hosting
Domain ID Protection is beyond question the perfect solution for anybody who would like to keep his personal information non–public. Using the WHOIS protection service available from XL Web Hosting, you can be sure your personal data will definitely be safe and sound and that no–one will ever view it.
Just by placing a system email inside your Whois contacts, we are going to filter all the newly arriving emails and allow through only essential notifications for example transfer consent requests. By doing this, you simply will not be disrupted by spammers or any kind of people who intend to violate your personal privacy.
Whois Protection–eligible TLDs
Our company is not able to deliver WHOIS protection for all domain names. That is a constraint enforced by the organization responsible for administering the precise TLD at the top level. This is exactly why solely a small number of domains are presently WHOIS protection–eligible:
The supported TLDs are: .com, .net, .org, .we.bs, .info, .biz, .co, .co.za, .me, .tv & .cc.
Grab SSL certificates straight from your CP
Through the Domain Manager, you can request an SSL certificate for your domain name. With an SSL certificate, all the sensitive info that your clients send through your website (on the order page, through a login form, etc.) will be enciphered and the submitted data will never be imperiled.
To order an SSL certificate for your domain name, just enter the required details and hit the Activate button. You can obtain a common SSL certificate, which will be enabled for a single host, or a wildcard SSL certificate, which will be valid for all the hosts under your domain name.
All–Inclusive Domain Manager
Modify name servers, generate subdomains, etc.
Inside the Control Panel you will find a point–and–click domain name administration interface featuring a multitude of features for managing several domains simultaneously. You can quickly set up sub–domain names, redirect websites, modify the nameservers or the WHOIS details pertaining to a domain, add custom DNS entries and much more.
Other than the standard domain name controls, in the Domain Manager you will also find an option to hide your registration information by using the WHOIS protection feature and to safeguard your online store’s financial transactions with regular or wildcard digital certificates.
Create a wildcard domain with a click
With the Wildcard DNS functionality, you will be able to make all your active sub–domains forward to the main page of your web site. For instance, when somebody types any.domain.com or smth.domain.com, they will visit http://domain.com/.
You may need the Wildcard DNS option for a multi–site web application such as WordPress or Joomla Multi–Site.
To add a wildcard domain name, visit the Domain Manager section of your Control Panel and then hit the Add Host button located on the right. At the bottom of the options list, you will notice the Wildcard Domain checkbox.
Effortless WHOIS Administration
WHOIS management made hassle–free
Your domain goes hand in hand with the registrant, technical and admin contact info that you provide during the registration procedure. Because this info must be relevant and up–to–the–minute, you need to have an option to edit it, when necessary.
This can be done through the Domain Manager section in your Control Panel. Simply specify the domain that you want to change the registration info for and then press the Edit WHOIS button. All the changes that you make will be reflected live instantly! You’ll be able to also edit the WHOIS information pertaining to multiple domain names simultaneously.

GeoIP Redirection Tool
Setup location–based redirections
The Domain Manager gives you the possibility to address a specific target audience based upon its location. With the GeoIP redirection tool, you’ll be able to effortlessly forward the visitors from a certain geographic area to a certain part of your website that targets their needs. For instance, if you desire to have a French version of your site, you can easily create a sub–domain fr.your–website.com and use the tool to forward the people coming from France and from the French–speaking countries to this subdomain.
The GeoIP location tool offers an easy–to–use interface from where you’ll be able to set up a redirection with just a click. There is absolutely no necessity to add any code to the .htaccess file.
DNS Record Management
Get total control of your DNS settings
From the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel, you will exercise complete control over your domain’s DNS resource records. You’ll be able to quickly edit different DNS resource records, including A, AAAA, MX, NS, CNAME, SRV and TXT records. Adding new DNS resource records and updating them if needed is pretty easy. Simply specify the desired value and then click on the action button. A couple of hours will be necessary for the newly specified records to be propagated all over the globe. If you need to convert a DNS resource record to its old state, you can also do that with only one single mouse click.
What’s more, the Domain Manager tool offers you the opportunity to set nameservers for your domain or to direct your visitors to different sections of your website based on their physical location.
Theft–proof your domain names
