When you register a domain, you are requested to give a valid postal address, email and telephone as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can see your details and some people may not be OK with that fact. As a consequence, many companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve ordered a Linux website hosting from us and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them easily and to keep your private info safe. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “ID Protect” logo next to each of your domain names. Its colour will show you if a domain name is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with only a few clicks. In this way, you can shield your personal information even if you haven’t activated the service during the web hosting account activation process. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can add our ID Protection service effortlessly. This takes only several clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage everything connected with your account. This is where you can see all your registered domains and for each of them you’ll see an “ID Protect” icon, using which you can order, renew or disable the ID Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code domain extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
