When you register a domain, you are required to give an authentic postal address, email and telephone as per the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anybody can check your details and certain individuals may not be satisfied with this. As a consequence, lots of registrar companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have ordered a cloud web hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them effortlessly and to keep your private data secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the TLD extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find an “ID Protect” icon on the right-hand side of each of your domains. Its colour will tell you if a domain is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with only several mouse clicks. Thus, you can shield your private details even if you haven’t enabled the ID Protection service during the 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.
