All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unwanted transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of 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 an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a Linux cloud website hosting from us, you will exercise full command over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, as long as the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to alter that status. If you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is remarkably easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate straight away, you will be able to continue with the transfer procedure without the need to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
