In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and accurate at all times. Additionally, this info is publicly available on WHOIS websites and while this may not be a problem for organizations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because anybody can see their names and their personal street and email addresses, particularly in times when identity fraud isn’t that rare. For this reason, registrar companies have introduced a service that hides the details of their customers without changing them. The service is called ID Protection, WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection. If it is enabled, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they do a WHOIS lookup. The ID Protection service is supported by all generic domain extensions, but it is still impossible to hide your personal information with some country-code extensions.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is amazingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll only have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “ID Protect” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you wish to transfer a given domain to a different registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact information with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Enabling ID Protection for any domain name is surprisingly easy in case you have a semi-dedicated server. If the domain is registered with our company, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated package. If a given generic or country-code Top-Level Domain supports ID Protection, you’ll see a mini symbol next to that domain. To activate the ID Protection service, you will have to click on it. In the exact same manner, you can also renew or disable the service. You can enable ID Protection for a domain name during the account activation procedure as well, but since the ID Protection service is optional, we’ll offer you the opportunity to add it to any of your domains at a later time if you think things over and opt to conceal your private info from the public after you have already ordered the account.
