All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud package from our company, you’ll have complete command over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the particular generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to change that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering your domains with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will find out if the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated straight away and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
