When you register a domain name, you are asked to give a genuine home address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anybody can view your information and many individuals may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, many domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Activating the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is amazingly easy in case you’ve got a shared website hosting plan. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” button, which will be available for each top-level domain name that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or deactivate it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a certain domain to some other registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated people.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names in a couple of simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account activation procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you change your mind later, you can activate the ID Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate ID Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after signing up. Renewing or disabling the ID Protection service is just as easy and will require just a few clicks of the mouse.
