When you register a domain, you are required to give an authentic address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anybody can see your details and certain individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. Consequently, numerous registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can easily enable ID Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company if you have a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be done through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account itself, so you won’t have to go through different platforms. In the exact same section where all your registered domains will be displayed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for every domain whose extension supports the service. The status of this icon will quickly let you know if the ID Protection service is enabled for a specific domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service in case you haven’t done so upon registration. Besides, you’ll also be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any domain name using the very same icon and the update will take effect right away.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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 few 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 later, you can enable the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through 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 the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will take just several mouse clicks.
