When you register a domain name, you are requested to give a genuine street address, email and phone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can view your details and lots of individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. As a result, numerous companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of your domain names provided that their extensions support the service. You can register or transfer a domain name and add ID Protection during the signup process or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any moment later through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is really easy – once you log in, you will need to go to the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you’ve registered through us. For each one of them you’ll notice an “ID Protect” logo, which will let you know whether the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either ID-protect the domain name, or you can turn off the service if it is currently enabled.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by following a couple of simple steps. In case you order a registration or a transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain. If you omit this step and you think things over afterwards, you can activate the ID Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer 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 signup. Renewing or disabling the ID Protection service is just as easy and will require only a couple of clicks.
