All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name 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 do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is unbelievably easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our cloud website hosting, and will require literally two clicks. All your domain names will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will see the present status of the domain name. Click once more and you’ll alter its status. The update will propagate momentarily without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can go ahead with the transfer right away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll see if the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to change this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated straight away and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
