All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Many registry operators that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you buy a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish 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 web hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different admin panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domains with our company is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domain names registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be displayed alphabetically and on the right you will see a padlock-like icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see if the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will be changed straight away and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer without needing to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
