When you register a domain, you have to supply an authentic postal address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS sites too, so anyone can see your info and lots of individuals may not be okay with this. Consequently, plenty of domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is exceptionally easy if you have a cloud hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the 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 generic or country-code top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it completely – if you’d like to transfer a given domain name to some other registrar company. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unsolicited people.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can add our ID Protection service without any effort. This requires just a couple of mouse clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything related to your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your active domains and for each of them you will find an “ID Protect” icon, using which you can activate, renew or disable the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code domain extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up paying for a service that we can’t provide.
