All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that manage country-code TLDs 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 access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only several mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a small padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once more and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is incredibly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate immediately, you will be able to continue with the transfer process without the need to wait for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
