All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unapproved transfers of active domains. Many domain registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a Linux shared hosting from us, you will have absolute authority over your domains through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, provided that the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will enable you to update that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is exceptionally easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate instantaneously, you’ll be able to continue with the transfer process without the need to wait for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than several mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
