When you register a domain, you need to provide a genuine home address, email account and phone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can check your information and some people may not be okay with this. Consequently, numerous companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

ID Protection in Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is really easy in case you’ve got a hosting. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll only have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “ID Protect” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a specific domain to another registrar company. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact info with only several clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide 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 a few easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain 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 later, you can order the ID Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can activate ID Protection for all other domain names that you register with our company after the signup process. Renewing or deactivating the ID Protection service is just as easy and will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
