According to the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and accurate all the time. Furthermore, this information is freely available on WHOIS sites and while this may be okay for firms, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because everybody can see their names and their personal postal and email addresses, especially in an age when identity theft is not that unusual. That is why domain registrars have launched a service that hides the details of their customers without modifying them. The service is called ID Protection, WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection. In case it is enabled, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they perform a WHOIS lookup. The ID Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still not possible to conceal your details with some country-code extensions.
ID Protection in Website Hosting
If you have ordered a website hosting service from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to activate ID Protection for any of them without difficulty and to keep your personal information safe. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” button to the right of each of your domains. Its colour will inform you if a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Thus, you can safeguard your private info even if you have not activated the ID Protection service during the hosting account activation procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domain names by following a couple of simple steps. If you order a registration/transfer during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. If you omit this step and you change your mind at a later time, you can enable the ID Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable ID Protection for all other domain names that you register with us after the signup procedure. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will take just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
