When you register a domain name, you are required to give an authentic address, email account and telephone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anybody can view your information and lots of individuals may not be pleased with that fact. Consequently, a lot of domain name registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains 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 Shared Website Hosting

If you have ordered a shared website hosting plan from our company and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your personal data intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “ID Protect” symbol next to each of your domains. Its color will tell you if a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with just a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your private details even if you have not enabled the service during the registration process. You’ll 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 Servers

If you would like to conceal the contact info for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to activate our ID Protection service either during the account activation process or at any time later via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be enabled with several mouse clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you’ve registered through our company will be displayed alphabetically. You can activate ID Protection for any of the domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “ID Protect” logo on the right-hand side of each domain. In the same fashion, you can also renew the ID Protection service or shut it off – in case you want to transfer a domain to another domain registrar and you need the actual mailbox associated with the domain name to be visible.
