When you register a domain name, you are requested to provide a genuine address, email account and telephone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can view your details and lots of individuals may not be pleased with this. As a result, plenty of companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
ID Protection in Shared Hosting
You can swiftly enable ID Protection for any domain that you’ve registered through our company if you have a shared hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account, so you won’t have to go through different admin interfaces. In the very same section where all your registered domains will be displayed, there will be an “ID Protect” icon for each and every domain name whose extension supports the service. The status of that icon will quickly let you know if the ID Protection service is enabled for a specific domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so upon registration. What’s more, you will also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain name using the exact same icon and the update will take effect momentarily.
