ID Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or WHOIS Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact information of domain name owners on WHOIS check websites. Without this service, the name, street address and email account of any domain name registrant will be freely accessible. Supplying fake details during the registration process or altering the authentic info subsequently will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS info must be correct and up to date all the time. The ID Protection service was introduced by registrars as a response to the arising concerns about possible identity theft. If the protection service is enabled, the domain registrar’s contact info will be shown instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the ID Protection service, although there are some country-code extensions that don’t.
ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have ordered a cloud web hosting from us and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to activate ID Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your private details safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” symbol on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will show you whether a domain name is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with just several mouse clicks. In this way, you can shield your personal details even if you haven’t added the service during the web hosting account activation process. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can add our ID Protection service without difficulty. This takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you administer everything connected with your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is where you can see all your registered domain names and for each one of them you will see an “ID Protect” button, using which you can enable, renew or deactivate the ID Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this beforehand, so you will not end up buying a service that we can’t provide.
