All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many domain name registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud 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 just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a tiny padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domain names with our company is extremely 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 domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock icon in case the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you’ll 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 right away and you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure without having to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
