All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security 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 been given access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option 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 Hosting

With a cloud plan from our company, you will have full command over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, as long as the particular top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you will see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will allow you to change that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is incredibly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantaneously, you will be able to continue with the domain transfer without the need to wait for the registrar lock status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not take more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
