In accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. Plus, this information is publicly accessible on WHOIS lookup web sites and while this may be OK for firms, it may not be very convenient for individuals, since anybody can see their names and their personal email and postal addresses, especially in times when identity fraud isn’t that unusual. For this reason, registrar companies have come up with a service that conceals the details of their clients without editing them. The service is called ID Protection, Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection. In case it’s enabled, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner, if they do a WHOIS lookup. The ID Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it is still impossible to hide your private details with some country-code extensions.
ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve ordered a Linux cloud website hosting from our company and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your personal data safe. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such an option. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll notice an “ID Protect” sign on the right-hand side of each of your domain names. Its color will let you know whether a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with just a few mouse clicks. Thus, you can shield your private data even if you haven’t activated the ID Protection service during the hosting account activation procedure. You will 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 package from us, you will be able to add ID Protection to any of your domains in a couple of easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain name during the account activation process, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can order the ID Protection service from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the whole semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the ID Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signup. Renewing or deactivating the service is just as easy and will require only a couple of mouse clicks.
