When you register a domain, you are requested to supply an authentic postal address, email and phone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites too, so anybody can check your information and lots of individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a result, many domain name registrars have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, 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. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.
ID Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have ordered a shared website hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your private details secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find an “ID Protect” button to the right of each of your domains. Its color will tell you if a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with only several mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your private info even if you haven’t activated the ID Protection service during the web hosting account activation procedure. You will 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 our company and you register a domain name under it, you can add our ID Protection service without any effort. This requires just a few clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer everything associated with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you’ll see an “ID Protect” symbol, using which you can enable, renew or disable the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this in advance, so you won’t end up paying for a service that we cannot provide.
