All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a Linux shared web hosting from us, you will exercise absolute command over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through us, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will enable you to alter that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is exceptionally easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia 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 those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate right away, you will be able to initiate the domain transfer without waiting for the status to be updated on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks in your Control Panel.
