When you register a domain, you are requested to give an authentic address, email account and telephone number as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites too, so anyone can check your information and a lot of individuals may not be satisfied with this. As a consequence, lots of registrar companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from us, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of your domain names on the condition that their extensions support this option. You can register/transfer a domain name and enable ID Protection during the signup process or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any time later via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is astonishingly easy – once you log in, you’ll need to go to the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each one of them you’ll notice an “ID Protect” logo, which will inform you whether the service is activated or not. By clicking it, you can either ID-protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently enabled.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains by following a couple of simple steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you omit this step and you think things over at a later time, you can enable the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domains that you register through us after the signup procedure. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will take only a couple of mouse clicks.
