In accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain name is registered with must be valid and up to date all the time. Plus, this information is openly visible on WHOIS websites and while this may not be a problem for corporations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because everyone can see their names and their personal email and postal addresses, especially in an age when identity fraud isn’t that atypical. This is why registrar companies have introduced a service that hides the details of their clients without editing them. The service is called ID Protection, Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection. In case it is enabled, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s, if they perform a WHOIS search. The ID Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still impossible to hide your personal information with some country-code ones.

ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered through our company is surprisingly easy if you have a shared web hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you will just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “ID Protect” icon, which will be available for each 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 altogether – if you would like to transfer a specific domain name to a different company. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact info with just several clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated individuals.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by completing several easy steps. In case you order a registration/transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you skip this step and you think things over at a later time, you can order the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after the signup process. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as simple and will take only a few clicks.
