When you register a domain, you are asked to provide a valid address, email and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anyone can view your details and lots of people may not be okay with this. As a result, numerous registrar companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains 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 Web Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with us is surprisingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux web hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will only need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “ID Protect” logo, which will be available for each gTLD or ccTLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you want to transfer a certain domain to a different company. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact information with only a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unsolicited persons.
