In accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain name is registered with must be valid and accurate all the time. In addition, this info is openly visible on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may be okay for organizations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because anybody can view their names and their personal postal and email addresses, particularly in an age when identity fraud is not that infrequent. That is why registrars have introduced a service that conceals the details of their customers without modifying them. The service is referred to as ID Protection, WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection. If it’s enabled, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner, if they perform a WHOIS search. The ID Protection service is supported by all generic domain extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your info with some country-code ones.

ID Protection in Web Hosting

Activating the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is very easy if you’ve got a Linux web hosting package. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you’ll only need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “ID Protect” button, which will be available for each gTLD or ccTLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or deactivate it altogether – if you wish to transfer a certain domain to a different company. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact info with just a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized persons.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names in a couple of easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the signup process, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you change your mind afterwards, you can activate the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can activate ID Protection for all other domain names that you register with our company after signup. Renewing or deactivating the ID Protection service is just as simple and will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
