When you register a domain, you are obliged to give an authentic home address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS sites too, so anyone can check your info and lots of individuals may not be pleased with that fact. As a consequence, many registrar companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains 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 Web Hosting

You can effortlessly enable ID Protection for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company if you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be done through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin panels. In the same section where all your active domain names will be displayed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for each and every domain name whose extension supports this service. The status of each icon will quickly let you know if the ID Protection service is enabled for a specific domain or not and by clicking that icon you can enable the service if you haven’t done so during the account activation procedure. Besides, you will also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain name using the very same icon and the update will take effect momentarily.
