When you register a domain, you need to supply a genuine street address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anyone can view your details and lots of people may not be comfortable with that fact. As a consequence, numerous companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with us is unbelievably easy if you have a shared web hosting service. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will simply have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it completely – if you’d like to transfer a given domain to another domain registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact details with only several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthorized persons.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can add our ID Protection service easily. This requires just a few clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you manage everything related to your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is where you can see all your active domain names and for each of them you will see an “ID Protect” logo, using which you can activate, renew or deactivate the ID Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific domain extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so that you won’t end up buying a service that we can’t provide.
