When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply an authentic home address, email account and telephone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS websites as well, so anyone can view your details and many people may not be comfortable with this. Consequently, numerous domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is remarkably easy if you have a cloud website hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you’ll simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “ID Protect” sign, which will be available for each domain name that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it altogether – if you wish to transfer a certain domain to some other domain registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated people.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by taking a few easy steps. In case you register or transfer a domain during the signup process, you can get the service together with the domain. In case you omit this step and you think things over afterwards, you can enable the ID Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domains that you register through us after the signup procedure. Renewing or disabling the ID Protection service is just as simple and will require no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
