When you register a domain, you need to provide an authentic street address, email account and phone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can check your information and a lot of individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. Consequently, numerous domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see 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 the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is very easy if you’ve got a hosting. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you will only have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “ID Protect” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – in case you want to transfer a particular domain to a different registrar. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthenticated persons.
