When you register a domain, you are asked to supply an authentic home address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy 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 available to the general public on WHOIS check websites too, so anybody can view your details and some individuals may not be okay with this. As a consequence, numerous domain name registrars have come up with 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 the domain owner’s. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.
ID Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve ordered a web hosting from us and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your personal details secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will notice an “ID Protect” symbol to the right of each of your domain names. Its color will inform you whether a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can add ID Protection with just a couple of clicks. In this way, you can shield your private info even if you have not enabled the service during the registration 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
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains in a couple of simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the signup procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can order the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signup. Renewing or deactivating the ID Protection service is just as simple and will require only a few clicks of the mouse.
