When you register a domain, you have to provide a valid home address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anyone can see your information and lots of people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, numerous registrar companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

Activating the ID Protection service for any domain registered through our company is really easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will just 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 that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it completely – in case you’d like to transfer a particular domain name to another registrar company. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unauthenticated individuals.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Activating ID Protection for any domain is really easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain name is registered with us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated package. If a specific generic or country-code top-level domain name is ID Protection-eligible, you’ll see a mini button on the right-hand side of that domain. To activate the service, you’ll need to click on it. In the same way, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can activate ID Protection for a domain during the account order procedure too, but since the service is optional, we will give you the opportunity to add it to any of your domains at a later point in time in case you think things over and choose to conceal your personal information from the public after you’ve already created the semi-dedicated account.
