When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give a valid home address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites too, so anybody can view your information and some individuals may not be delighted with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of registrar companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can quickly activate ID Protection for any domain that you’ve registered with our company in case you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account itself, so you will not need to log in and out of different tools. In the very same section where all your active domain names will be displayed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for each domain name whose extension supports this service. The status of that icon will quickly let you know whether the ID Protection service is enabled for a specific domain or not and by clicking that icon you can enable the service in case you have not done so during the registration process. Plus, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain using that same icon and the change will take effect momentarily.
