When you register a domain, you have to give a valid home address, email and telephone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anyone can see your information and certain people may not be pleased with that fact. Consequently, a lot of domain name registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.
ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you get a cloud website hosting plan from us, you will be able to activate ID Protection for any of your domains provided that their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain name and enable ID Protection during the signup process or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any time later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is really easy – after you log in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you have registered through our company. For each one of them you’ll see an “ID Protect” icon, which will show you if the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either ID-protect the domain, or you can disable the service if it is currently active.
ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names in several easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain name during the account activation process, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you change your mind later, you can add the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate ID Protection for all other domains that you register with us after the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the service is just as easy and will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
