When you register a domain, you are obliged to give a genuine postal address, email account and phone 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 name registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can view your details and many individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a consequence, numerous companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.
ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can easily enable ID Protection for any domain that you have registered with our company if you have a cloud website hosting account with us. This can be done through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms. In the 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 this icon will quickly show you whether the ID Protection service is activated for a certain domain name or not and by clicking on that icon you can add the service in case you have not done so during the account activation procedure. In addition, you will also be able to renew or to disable the ID Protection service for any domain name using the same icon and the change will take effect right away.
