When you register a domain, you are requested to provide an authentic address, email account and phone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can see your details and some individuals may not be happy with this. As a result, numerous domain name registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.

ID Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our ID Protection service without any effort. This requires just several clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage everything related to your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is the place where you can see all your domains and for each one of them you’ll see an “ID Protect” icon, using which you can activate, renew or deactivate the ID Protection service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that are ID Protection-eligible and you will be able to see this beforehand, so that you will not end up purchasing a service that we cannot provide.
