When you register a domain, you have to provide a genuine postal address, email and phone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can check your details and a lot of people may not be satisfied with this. As a result, numerous companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux cloud hosting from us and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to activate ID Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your personal data safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “ID Protect” sign next to each of your domain names. Its color will let you know whether a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with just a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your private info even if you have not added the ID Protection service during the registration process. You will 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 Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by completing a couple of simple steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the signup procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. If you omit this step and you think things over later, you can enable the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable ID Protection for all other domains that you register with us after the signup process. Renewing or deactivating the ID Protection service is just as easy and will require only a few mouse clicks.
