When you register a domain name, you are requested to provide a valid address, email and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anybody can check your info and certain people may not be happy with that fact. Consequently, a lot of registrar companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as 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 enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
ID Protection in Hosting
You can swiftly enable ID Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company in case you have a hosting account with us. This can be done through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account, so you will not have to go through different Control Panel tools. In the same section where all your active domain names will be listed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for every domain name whose extension supports this option. The status of each icon will quickly show you if the ID Protection service is activated for a certain domain or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so during the account activation process. What’s more, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain name using the exact same icon and the update will take effect immediately.
ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by following several simple steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you think things over afterwards, you can add the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can enable ID Protection for all other domain names that you register with our company after the signup procedure. Renewing or disabling the service is just as easy and will take only a few mouse clicks.
