When you register a domain, you are asked to provide a genuine street address, email and phone number as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can check your info and many individuals may not be okay with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can quickly enable ID Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company in case you have a cloud website hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account itself, so you will not need to go through different admin consoles. In the same section where all your registered domains will be listed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for each domain whose extension supports this service. The status of this icon will quickly let you know if the ID Protection service is enabled for a certain domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can enable the service if you haven’t done so upon signup. What’s more, you’ll also be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any domain using the exact same icon and the update will take effect immediately.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains by following several easy steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you change your mind at a later point in time, you can add the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate ID Protection for all other domains that you register with our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the service is just as easy and will take only a couple of clicks.
