When you register a domain name, you are required to supply an authentic address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS sites too, so anybody can check your details and lots of individuals may not be OK with this. As a consequence, numerous domain registrars have introduced the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Activating the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with us is unbelievably easy if you’ve got a shared web hosting plan. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “ID Protect” sign, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you want to transfer a particular domain name to a different registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact details with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized persons.
