When you register a domain name, you need to supply an authentic street address, email and phone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can see your information and lots of people may not be OK with that fact. As a result, lots of registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.

ID Protection in Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux hosting from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to activate ID Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your personal data intact. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see an “ID Protect” symbol to the right of each of your domains. Its color will tell you whether a domain name is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with just several clicks. Thus, you can secure your private information even if you have not 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 domains just as easily.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain under it, you can add our ID Protection service with ease. This requires just several mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you administer everything related to your 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” logo, using which you can activate, renew or remove the ID Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific domain name extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you will not end up requesting a service that we can’t provide.
