When you register a domain, you have to give an authentic postal address, email and telephone 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 visible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anybody can check your details and certain individuals may not be comfortable with this. As a result, numerous registrar companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can quickly activate ID Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company in case you have a shared web hosting account with us. This can be accomplished through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you will not need to switch between different admin interfaces. In the same section where all your active domain names will be displayed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for each domain whose extension supports the service. The status of each icon will quickly let you know if the ID Protection service is activated for a given domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service if you have not done so upon signup. Moreover, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain name using the very same icon and the update will take effect straight away.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by completing several easy steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can add the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domains that you register with us after the signup process. Renewing or removing the ID Protection service is just as simple and will take no more than several mouse clicks.
