All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to impede any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you will just have to click once more and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different admin consoles.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll see a padlock-like icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you’ll find out if the specific domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once again. The status will change immediately and you will be able to initiate the transfer procedure without the need to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
