When you register a domain name, you are asked to supply an authentic address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can view your details and many people may not be delighted with that fact. As a consequence, many registrar companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the TLDs around the world allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
ID Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve ordered a Linux cloud hosting package from us and you have registered one or more domain names under your account, you’ll be able to activate ID Protection for any of them without effort and to keep your private details secure. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this service. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find an “ID Protect” icon next to each of your domain names. Its colour will let you know if a domain is ID-protected or not and in the second case, you can enable ID Protection with just a couple of mouse clicks. Thus, you can shield your personal info even if you have not enabled the ID Protection service during the hosting account activation procedure. You will be able to renew or to deactivate the ID Protection service for any of your domain names just as easily.
