When you register a domain name, you are required to provide a genuine street address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy approved 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 public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anybody can see your details and a lot of individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, lots of registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Now, most of the TLDs 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 Shared Hosting

If you’ve ordered a shared hosting plan from our company and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your private details intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see an “ID Protect” sign to the right of each of your domain names. Its colour will show you if a domain name is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with just a couple of clicks. In this way, you can protect your private info even if you haven’t activated the ID Protection service during the hosting account activation procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you would like to conceal the contact information associated with your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to add our ID Protection service either upon registration or at any time later via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered through our company will be listed in alphabetical order. You can order ID Protection for any of the domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “ID Protect” logo next to each domain name. In the very same way, you can also renew the ID Protection service or disable it – in case you’d like to transfer a domain name to a different registrar and you need the actual email associated with the domain to be visible.
