When you register a domain name, you are requested to give an authentic home address, email account and telephone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can check your info and some people may not be pleased with this. As a result, plenty of companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

ID Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with us is really easy in case you have a shared website hosting plan. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” symbol, which will be available for each domain name that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – in case you want to transfer a specific domain to some other company. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with just several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited persons.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to hide the contact info for your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to enable our ID Protection service either during the signup procedure or at any time later via our Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be added with several mouse clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company will be listed in alphabetical order. You can enable ID Protection for any of the top-level domain name extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “ID Protect” sign next to each domain. In the same fashion, you can also renew the ID Protection service or remove it – if you’d like to transfer a domain to some other company and you need the actual email address associated with the domain name to be visible.
