When you register a domain name, you are required to give an authentic address, email account and telephone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anyone can see your information and a lot of people may not be delighted with that fact. As a result, lots of domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact information 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 WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

Activating the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is stunningly easy in case you’ve got a cloud plan. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “ID Protect” sign, which will be available for each domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – in case you wish to transfer a particular domain to some other domain registrar. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact details with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited individuals.
