When you register a domain, you are requested to supply an authentic postal address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS check sites too, so anybody can see your details and many individuals may not be okay with that fact. As a result, many registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.

ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have ordered a Linux shared web hosting from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your personal details intact. Of course, this can be done only with the extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll notice an “ID Protect” icon on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its colour will show you if a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can add ID Protection with just several clicks. In this way, you can shield your personal data even if you have not enabled the ID Protection service during the web hosting account order process. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
