When you register a domain, you are requested to provide a valid street address, email account and phone as per the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can view your details and a lot of people may not be OK with this. As a consequence, numerous domain name registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve ordered a cloud web hosting from us and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to activate ID Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your personal data safe. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” logo to the right of each of your domain names. Its color will let you know if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can add ID Protection with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can secure your personal information even if you have not activated the ID Protection service during the web hosting account activation procedure. 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 Servers

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains by following several simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain name during the account activation procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you omit this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can enable the ID Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate ID Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after the signup procedure. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will require just a few clicks.
