When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply a genuine address, email and telephone number as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can see your details and many individuals may not be okay with this. As a consequence, numerous domain name registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

ID Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is remarkably easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud service. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will only have to go to 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 domain that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it completely – if you’d like to transfer a certain domain name to another domain name registrar. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with just several clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.
