When you register a domain name, you are required to provide a genuine postal address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anyone can check your information and lots of individuals may not be delighted with that fact. Consequently, plenty of companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

ID Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting plan from us, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of your domains if their extensions support the service. You can register or transfer a domain name and add ID Protection during the signup process or you can activate the service for any of your domains at any time afterwards through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The process is very easy – after you log in, you’ll need to visit the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you have registered with our company. For each one of them you will see an “ID Protect” sign, which will tell you if the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either ID-protect the domain, or you can turn off the service if it is currently active.
