ID Protection, occasionally also referred to as Privacy or WHOIS Protection, is a service that hides the real contact information of domain name registrants on WHOIS check websites. Without protection, the personal name, postal address and email of any domain name owner will be freely available. Supplying fake details during the domain registration process or changing the authentic information afterwards will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS information must be valid and accurate all the time. The ID Protection service was launched by domain registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns about potential identity theft. If the service is enabled, the registrar company’s contact info will be listed instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the ID Protection service, although there are some country-code ones that don’t.

ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the ID Protection service for any domain registered through our company is incredibly easy if you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll just need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “ID Protect” symbol, which will be available for each gTLD or ccTLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the ID Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you would like to transfer a certain domain name to a different domain registrar. With our ID Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.
