When you register a domain, you are required to provide a genuine address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anybody can view your details and lots of people may not be satisfied with this. As a result, numerous domain registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.
ID Protection in Hosting
If you get a hosting plan from us, you will be able to activate ID Protection for any of your domain names if their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and enable ID Protection during the signup procedure or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards via the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is surprisingly easy – once you sign in, you will need to go to the Registered Domains section where you’ll see a list of all the domains that you have registered through us. For each one of them you will notice an “ID Protect” logo, which will let you know whether the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either ID-protect the domain name, or you can disable the service if it is currently enabled.
