All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting from us, you’ll exercise total authority over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, provided that the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will allow you to alter that status. In case you want to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can initiate the process momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is remarkably easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect straight away, you will be able to proceed with the domain transfer procedure without waiting for the lock status to change on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
