When you register a domain name, you are requested to give a genuine home address, email account and phone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anyone can check your info and certain individuals may not be okay with this. As a result, numerous domain registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Now, most of the TLDs 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 Cloud Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered through our company is astonishingly easy in case you have a Linux cloud package. You can do this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you will simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “ID Protect” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you would like to transfer a given domain name to a different registrar company. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact information with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized persons.
