When you register a domain, you have to give an authentic street address, email account and telephone as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anyone can view your info and some people may not be pleased with this. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow ID Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.
ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Activating the ID Protection service for any domain name registered with us is unbelievably easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “ID Protect” icon, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – in case you want to transfer a specific domain name to some other registrar company. With the ID Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthorized individuals.

Renewing or removing the service is just as easy and will require just a couple of clicks.
