When you register a domain, you are requested to supply a valid street address, email and phone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS sites as well, so anybody can check your details and lots of individuals may not be comfortable with this. Consequently, numerous domain registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Today, most of the TLDs 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 Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to activate ID Protection for any of your domain names in case their extensions support this service. You can register or transfer a domain and enable ID Protection upon signup or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is incredibly easy – after you log in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domains that you have registered through our company. For each one of them you will notice an “ID Protect” sign, which will tell you if the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either ID-protect the domain name, or you can turn off the service if it is currently activated.
