When you register a domain, you are obliged to give a genuine postal address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can view your information and lots of individuals may not be happy with that fact. As a consequence, many registrar companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.

ID Protection in Website Hosting

Activating the ID Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is unbelievably easy if you’ve got a Linux website hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you’ll just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “ID Protect” sign, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you want to transfer a specific domain name to a different registrar company. With the ID Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with only several clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited persons.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can enable our ID Protection service with ease. This takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage everything connected with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you will find an “ID Protect” icon, using which you can activate, renew or remove the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific top-level domain name extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you will not end up paying for a service that we can’t provide.
