When you register a domain, you are asked to supply an authentic address, email and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS sites too, so anybody can see your info and many people may not be happy with this. As a result, plenty of domain registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the registrant’s contact 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 Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.
ID Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve ordered a cloud hosting from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them easily and to keep your private details safe. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “ID Protect” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will inform you whether a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can add ID Protection with just a few clicks. In this way, you can protect your private data even if you haven’t added the service during the signup process. 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 have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can activate our ID Protection service with ease. This requires just several clicks of the mouse in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you administer everything related to your account. This is the place where you can see all your active domain names and for each one of them you will see an “ID Protect” symbol, using which you can activate, renew or deactivate the ID Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you will not end up requesting a service that we cannot provide.
