All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to block any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you’ll have absolute authority 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 domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will allow you to edit that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domains with our company is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right you will see a padlock-like icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will see if the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will change momentarily and you will be able to start the domain transfer procedure without the need to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
