According to the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain name is registered with must be correct and accurate all the time. Furthermore, this info is freely visible on WHOIS sites and while this may be okay for firms, it may not be very convenient for individuals, since anybody can view their names and their personal postal and email addresses, especially in an age when identity fraud is not that infrequent. This is why domain name registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is referred to as ID Protection, Privacy Protection or WHOIS Protection. If it’s enabled, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they do a WHOIS lookup. The ID Protection service is supported by all generic top-level domain name extensions, but it is still impossible to hide your details with some country-code ones.
ID Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you get a cloud website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to enable ID Protection for any of your domain names on the condition that their extensions support this service. You can register/transfer a domain and enable ID Protection upon signup or you can activate the service for any of your domain names at any time later through the Hepsia Control Panel. The procedure is very easy – once you sign in, you will have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domains that you’ve registered with our company. For each of them you’ll notice an “ID Protect” button, which will let you know whether the service is active or not. By clicking on it, you can either ID-protect the domain, or you can turn off the service if it is currently active.
