All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to block unwanted transfers of active domains. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual 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 intentionally, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you’ll exercise complete control over your domains through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will permit you to edit that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the procedure immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is truly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and the ones 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 straight away, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain name transfer without the need to wait for the lock status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
