When you register a domain, you are required to provide an authentic street address, email and phone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can see your details and many individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and add ID Protection during the registration procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any time afterwards via the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is remarkably easy – once you sign in, you’ll have to visit the Registered Domains section where you’ll find a list of all the domains that you’ve registered with us. For each of them you will see an “ID Protect” symbol, which will inform you whether the service is enabled or not. By clicking it, you can either ID-protect the domain, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently active.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to conceal the contact details for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to activate our ID Protection service either during the signup procedure or at any moment later through our Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company will be displayed alphabetically. You can activate ID Protection for any of the extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “ID Protect” icon next to each domain name. In the very same manner, you can also renew the service or deactivate it – if you would like to transfer a domain to another company and you need the real email associated with the domain to be visible.
