When you register a domain, you are required to provide an authentic postal address, email account and telephone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can view your info and certain people may not be comfortable with this. As a consequence, many domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.
ID Protection in Web Hosting
Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with us is stunningly easy in case you’ve got a Linux web hosting. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will simply need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “ID Protect” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code top-level domain name that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it completely – if you wish to transfer a particular domain to a different registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact details with only a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthorized individuals.
