All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. 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 achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just several mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same place as the hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is amazingly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect right away, you’ll be able to start the domain transfer process without the need to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup 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 simple and will not take more than several clicks of the mouse in your Control Panel.
