All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a few 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 see a mini padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is amazingly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server.

You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect immediately, you will be able to go ahead with the domain name transfer without waiting for the status to change on WHOIS lookup websites. 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 a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
