All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that supervise ccTLDs 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 on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to block any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud hosting from us, you will have full command over your domain names through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will permit you to modify that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be listed alphabetically and on the right you will see a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will see if the particular domain name is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated instantaneously and you will be able to start the domain transfer procedure without the need to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
