When you register a domain name, you are asked to supply a valid address, email and phone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anybody can see your information and some individuals may not be delighted with this. As a result, many registrar companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of your domain names in case their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain name and enable ID Protection during the account activation process or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any moment later through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is astonishingly easy – once you log in, you will need to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll notice a list of all the domain names that you have registered through our company. For each one of them you will see an “ID Protect” logo, which will inform you whether the service is activated 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 activated.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can add our ID Protection service without any effort. This requires only a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you manage everything associated with your account. This is where you can see all your domain names and for each of them you will find an “ID Protect” icon, using which you can activate, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific TLD extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this in advance, so you won’t end up buying a service that we cannot provide.
