All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unwanted transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better 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 been granted access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting from our company, you will exercise full authority over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, provided that the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once again will enable you to update that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is extremely easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate straight away, you will be able to proceed with the domain transfer process without the need to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
