When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide a valid street address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can view your info and some individuals may not be okay with this. Consequently, numerous domain name registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll 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 and enable ID Protection during the account activation process or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is exceptionally easy – after you log in, you’ll need to go to the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered through us. For each of them you’ll notice an “ID Protect” button, which will show you if the service is enabled or not. By clicking it, you can either ID-protect the domain, or you can turn off the service if it is currently activated.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our ID Protection service without difficulty. This takes just several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything connected with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you’ll find an “ID Protect” icon, using which you can enable, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific TLD extensions that support this option and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so you won’t end up ordering a service that we cannot provide.
