All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a Linux cloud website hosting package from us, you will have absolute control over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia hosting 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 specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock logo that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to alter that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can initiate the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to follow the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domain names with us is amazingly easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will find out whether the given domain is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will be updated momentarily and you will be able to start the domain transfer without having to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
