When you register a domain name, you need to give a valid postal address, email account and telephone as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can view your info and certain people may not be okay with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of registrar companies have introduced 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 domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with us is unbelievably easy if you have a cloud web hosting. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a given domain to another domain name registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact info with only a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unsolicited persons.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

Enabling ID Protection for any domain name is extremely easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain is registered through our company, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package. In case a particular generic or country-specific top-level domain name supports ID Protection, you’ll notice a small icon to the right of that domain. To activate the ID Protection service, you’ll need to click on it. In the exact same way, you can also renew or disable the service. You can enable ID Protection for a domain name during the account activation process as well, but since the ID Protection service is optional, we’ll offer you the opportunity to add it to any of your domains at a later time in case you think things over and decide to conceal your private details from the public eye after you have already ordered the semi-dedicated account.
