When you register a domain name, you have to provide a valid postal address, email and phone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can see your information and many people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, plenty of domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux cloud web hosting package from us and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your personal information secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” icon next to each of your domains. Its colour will show you whether a domain name is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can add ID Protection with just a few clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can protect your private details even if you have not enabled the ID Protection service during the registration process. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our ID Protection service without effort. This requires only a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is where you can see all your domain names and for each of them you will find an “ID Protect” symbol, using which you can enable, renew or disable the ID Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code domain extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you won’t end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
