When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply a valid address, email and phone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can see your info and some individuals may not be okay with that fact. As a consequence, many registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

ID Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Activating the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is remarkably easy in case you have a shared web hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “ID Protect” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code TLD that supports the ID Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or disable it completely – in case you’d like to transfer a particular domain name to another registrar. With the ID Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact details with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated individuals.
