When you register a domain name, you have to supply a valid home address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can view your details and many individuals may not be pleased with that fact. Consequently, lots of registrar companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can effortlessly enable ID Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company if you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account itself, so you will not have to use different Control Panels. In the very same section where all your active domains will be listed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for each and every domain name whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly let you know whether the ID Protection service is activated for a given domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can activate the service if you haven’t done so during the account activation procedure. Plus, you will also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain name using the same icon and the change will take effect immediately.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains by taking a couple of simple steps. In case you register or transfer a domain during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you think things over afterwards, you can enable the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after the signup procedure. Renewing or disabling the service is just as simple and will require only a couple of mouse clicks.
