All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unauthorized transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety 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 domain registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting package from our company, you will exert complete control over your domain names 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 through our company, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll notice 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 to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domain names with us is amazingly easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right you will notice a padlock-like icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you will see if the specific domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking once more. The status will be changed immediately and you’ll be able to start the domain transfer without having to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
