All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll exercise full command over your domains through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will allow you to change that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is very easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantaneously, you’ll be able to go ahead with the transfer without waiting for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several mouse clicks in your Control Panel.
