All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to hinder unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that oversee country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain 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 option activated on purpose, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

If you purchase a Linux shared website hosting service from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you will just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is unbelievably easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Registered Domains 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 change will take effect right away, you’ll be able to continue with the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the status to change on WHOIS sites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
