When you register a domain name, you are asked to supply a valid address, email account and telephone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can see your information and a lot of people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, plenty of registrar companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Today, 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 Hosting
If you have ordered a shared hosting plan from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to activate ID Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your private information secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will notice an “ID Protect” logo to the right of each of your domains. Its color will inform you if a domain name is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with just several mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your private details even if you haven’t added the service during the web hosting account order 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
In case you want to conceal the contact details for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to enable our ID Protection service either during the account order procedure or at any moment later through your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is optional and can be added with a couple of clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you’ve registered with our company will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can activate ID Protection for any of the TLD extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “ID Protect” button on the right-hand side of each domain name. In the very same manner, you can also renew the ID Protection service or deactivate it – in case you wish to transfer a domain name to some other domain registrar and you need the actual mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
