All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to block unauthorized transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names 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 registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to stop any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a Linux shared web hosting from us, you’ll exert total command over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to change that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering your domains with us is extremely easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll notice a padlock icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you will find out if the specific domain name is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking again. The status will be changed straight away and you will be able to initiate the transfer without having to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
