All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Many registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud plan from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a mini padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it, you’ll just need to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domain names with us is extremely easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll see a padlock icon in case the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you’ll see if the given domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking once again. The status will change right away and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
