When you register a domain, you are asked to supply a genuine home address, email account and telephone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can view your info and a lot of individuals may not be happy with this. Consequently, numerous registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details 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 WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.

Activating the ID Protection service for any domain registered with our company is amazingly easy if you have a Linux cloud hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “ID Protect” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the protection service.

With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited people.
