All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to block unauthorized transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry operators that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a shared package from our company, you’ll exercise absolute command over your domain names through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered here, as long as the specific domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will enable you to update that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the procedure 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 required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is really easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Registered Domains section and those 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 take effect immediately, you’ll be able to proceed with the transfer process without waiting for the status to change on WHOIS sites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
