When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply an authentic home address, email account and phone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can see your information and some people may not be delighted with that fact. Consequently, plenty of companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. 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 TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

ID Protection in Website Hosting

If you have ordered a website hosting from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to activate ID Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your personal info safe. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” button to the right of each of your domains. Its colour will tell you if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with only a few mouse clicks. In this way, you can safeguard your private details even if you haven’t added the service during the signup process. You will be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains by following a few easy steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the account activation process, you can get the service along with the domain. If you skip this step and you change your mind afterwards, you can order the ID Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server 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 disabling the ID Protection service is just as simple and will require just a couple of mouse clicks.
