When you register a domain, you need to give a genuine address, email and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can view your information and certain individuals may not be happy with that fact. Consequently, a lot of registrars have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux cloud website hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to activate ID Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your private details secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see an “ID Protect” sign to the right of each of your domain names. Its colour will let you know if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with just a couple of clicks. In this way, you can safeguard your personal data even if you have not added the service during the registration procedure. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by completing several easy steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you omit this step and you think things over at a later point in time, 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 signing up. Renewing or removing the ID Protection service is just as simple and will require only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
