All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to stop unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you buy a cloud website hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it away, you can quickly unlock it through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All domain name registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in your account and you will notice a small padlock icon on the right side of each domain name there, on the condition that its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock option. You can see if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and alter the current status by clicking on it once more. You can then proceed and initiate the domain name transfer procedure right away without the need to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites, as the update will take effect momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
