When you register a domain name, you are required to supply a valid street address, email and telephone in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can see your info and some individuals may not be OK with this. Consequently, numerous domain registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered through us is incredibly easy if you have a cloud web hosting plan. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” logo, which will be available for each domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – in case you would like to transfer a specific domain to some other domain registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact information with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated individuals.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can activate our ID Protection service without difficulty. This requires only several mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage everything connected with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domains and for each of them you’ll find an “ID Protect” symbol, using which you can order, renew or remove the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
