In accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact information a domain name is registered with must be correct and up to date all the time. What’s more, this info is openly accessible on WHOIS web sites and while this may be OK for organizations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because everyone can see their names and their personal email and street addresses, all the more so in times when identity fraud isn’t that uncommon. That is why domain registrars have come up with a service that conceals the details of their clients without changing them. The service is called ID Protection, WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection. If it is active, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they perform a WHOIS search. The ID Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it is still not possible to conceal your details with certain country-code extensions.

ID Protection in Web Hosting

If you have ordered a web hosting plan from our company 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 any effort and to keep your private details intact. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” button to the right 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 only several mouse clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your personal details even if you have not added the ID Protection service during the registration procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
