All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will exert total command over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the particular domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock logo that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will allow you to modify that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering your domain names with us is truly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll see whether the specific domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to change this status by clicking once more. The status will change right away and you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer process without needing to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
