When you register a domain, you have to give a valid home address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anyone can check your information and many people may not be okay with this. As a consequence, plenty of companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s details and upon a WHOIS check, 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 terms refer to the exact same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can easily activate ID Protection for any domain that you have registered through our company if you have a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be done through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account, so you will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels. In the exact same section where all your active domain names will be displayed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for every domain name whose extension supports this service. The status of that icon will quickly let you know if the ID Protection service is enabled for a given domain or not and by clicking that icon you can add the service if you have not done so during the registration procedure. You’ll also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain name using the same icon and the update will take effect instantaneously.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains by following several easy 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 afterwards, you can activate the ID Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after the signup process. Renewing or disabling the service is just as simple and will require only several clicks.
