All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option 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 been given access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to block any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is incredibly easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting service, and will take literally two clicks. All your domain names will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will notice the current status of the domain name. Click once again and you’ll alter its status. The change will propagate instantly without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer process straight away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is incredibly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate momentarily, you will be able to proceed with the domain name transfer without needing to wait for the lock status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
