All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to block unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting plan from our company, you’ll exercise full authority over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the specific gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you will find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will enable you to alter that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to follow the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is really easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect straight away, you will be able to proceed with the domain name transfer process without waiting for the lock status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
