When you register a domain name, you need to provide a valid address, email account and telephone as per the policies adopted 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 websites too, so anyone can see your info and lots of individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, numerous registrar companies have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with us is very easy if you have a cloud hosting plan. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” sign, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you want to transfer a given domain to a different company. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact info with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unsolicited individuals.
