When you register a domain name, you are asked to give a genuine home address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anyone can check your info and a lot of people may not be OK with that fact. Consequently, plenty of companies have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is incredibly easy in case you’ve got a shared web hosting plan. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “ID Protect” logo, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a specific domain to a different registrar company. With the ID Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact info with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated individuals.
