When you register a domain, you are requested to provide a genuine home address, email account and telephone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anyone can view your details and a lot of individuals may not be pleased with this. As a result, many domain name registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your private info safe. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “ID Protect” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its color will tell you if a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can add ID Protection with just several mouse clicks. In this way, you can safeguard your personal information even if you have not activated the service during the hosting account activation process. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain name under it, you can add our ID Protection service with ease. This requires just a few clicks of the mouse in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you administer everything connected with your semi-dedicated web hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your domains and for each one of them you’ll see an “ID Protect” button, using which you can enable, renew or disable the ID Protection service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-specific top-level domain name extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this in advance, so you will not end up requesting a service that we can’t provide.
