When you register a domain, you have to provide an authentic address, email account and telephone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can see your information and lots of individuals may not be satisfied with this. As a consequence, plenty of companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.
ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have ordered a cloud web hosting from us and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your private data secure. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find an “ID Protect” logo next to each of your domains. Its colour will show you if a domain name is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with just a couple of mouse clicks. In this way, you can protect your personal details even if you have not activated the service during the signup process. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
Enabling ID Protection for any domain name is astonishingly easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain is registered with our company, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package. In case a particular generic or country-specific domain supports ID Protection, you will notice a tiny logo on its right. To activate the ID Protection service, you will need to click on it. In the same manner, you can also renew or remove the service. You can activate ID Protection for a domain name during the signup procedure as well, but since the ID Protection service is optional, we will offer you the chance to add it to any of your domains at a later time if you think things over and decide to conceal your private info from the public eye after you’ve already ordered the account.
