When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide a valid postal address, email and phone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can view your info and many individuals may not be pleased with that fact. As a consequence, numerous companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
ID Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have ordered a Linux cloud hosting from us and you’ve registered one or more domain names under your account, you will be able to enable ID Protection for any of them without any effort and to keep your private details secure. Of course, this will be possible only with the extensions that support such a service. In your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see an “ID Protect” symbol next to each of your domains. Its color will let you know if a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can activate ID Protection with just several clicks. Thus, you can shield your personal data even if you have not activated the service during the web hosting account order procedure. You’ll be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.
