When you register a domain name, you are required to supply an authentic postal address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anybody can check your information and certain people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, many companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.
ID Protection in Cloud Hosting
Activating the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is really easy if you have a Linux cloud hosting plan. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” icon, which will be available for each TLD that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it altogether – if you wish to transfer a specific domain name to some other company. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact information with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized persons.
ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains in a couple of easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you change your mind later, 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 turn on the ID Protection for all other domains that you register with us after the signup procedure. Renewing or deactivating the ID Protection service is just as easy and will require just a couple of clicks.
