When you register a domain name, you are required to give a genuine home address, email account and telephone 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 registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can see your details and many individuals may not be comfortable with this. As a result, lots of companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.
ID Protection in Website Hosting
Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is surprisingly easy if you have a website hosting plan. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” button, which will be available for each 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 want to transfer a particular domain to another company. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with only a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthorized persons.
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 domains by taking a few simple steps. In case you register or transfer a domain name during the account activation procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can activate the ID Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can manage 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 us after signing up. Renewing or removing the service is just as simple and will take just a few clicks of the mouse.
