All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to hinder unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry operators that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a Linux cloud website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a tiny padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different admin panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is amazingly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature 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 instantaneously, you’ll be able to continue with the domain transfer procedure without waiting for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your hosting Control Panel.
