When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide a valid address, email and telephone 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 registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anyone can check your info and lots of individuals may not be OK with this. As a consequence, plenty of companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.
ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Activating the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is amazingly easy if you’ve got a cloud website hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “ID Protect” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name 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 want to transfer a particular domain name to another registrar company. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact details with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.
ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by taking a few easy steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the account activation process, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you think things over later, you can activate the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate ID Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after signup. Renewing or disabling the service is just as simple and will take just a couple of mouse clicks.
