All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to stop unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you order a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click for the second time and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can easily unlock it via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to manage your semi-dedicated server account. All domain name registrations will be listed alphabetically in your account and you’ll see a mini padlock-like icon next to each domain name there, on the condition that its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can see if the domain is locked or not by clicking on this icon and alter the present status by clicking on it once more. You can then proceed and start the domain transfer process straight away without having to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites, as the change will take effect momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
