All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Many registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will have absolute authority over your domain names through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, as long as the specific top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you will see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will allow you to alter that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the process straight away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with our company is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock-like icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll see if the given domain is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will be updated straight away and you will be able to start the domain transfer process without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
