When you register a domain name, you are obliged to provide a genuine home address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policies approved 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 web sites as well, so anybody can view your info and a lot of individuals may not be delighted with that fact. As a result, numerous registrar companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s contact 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 Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs 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

You can quickly activate ID Protection for any domain that you have registered with our company if you’ve got a web hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account, so you will not need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards. In the same section where all your active domain names will be listed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for each and every domain name whose extension supports the service. The status of this icon will quickly let you know if the ID Protection service is enabled for a given domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service if you have not done so during the signup procedure. What’s more, you will also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain using that same icon and the update will take effect instantaneously.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
