All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs 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 domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is extremely easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting, and will require exactly two clicks of the mouse. All your domain names will be displayed alphabetically in the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like sign. Click on it once and you will notice the present status of the domain. Click for the second time and you will alter its status. The change will propagate immediately without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer procedure right away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering your domain names with us is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock-like icon in case the given domain 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’ll be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will be changed straight away and you will be able to start the domain transfer without having to wait for the change to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
