All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to block unwanted transfers of active domain names. Many registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this feature 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 a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to stop any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

With a Linux website hosting package from our company, you’ll have total authority over your domains through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it for the second time will allow you to alter that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process instantly. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is truly easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantly, you will be able to continue with the transfer process without having to wait for the status to change on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
