When you register a domain, you are asked to give a valid home address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can view your information and some individuals may not be happy with that fact. As a result, lots of domain registrars have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve ordered a shared hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of them easily and to keep your personal details safe. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its color will inform you whether a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. In this way, you can secure your private data even if you haven’t enabled the ID Protection service during the hosting account order process. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

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 domain names in several easy steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the signup procedure, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you skip this step and you think things over afterwards, 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 account. This is also the place where you can enable ID Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after the signup process. Renewing or disabling the service is just as easy and will require only a couple of mouse clicks.
