All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to block unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. 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 name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to block any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from our company, you will exercise full command over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, as long as the specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will enable you to change that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is amazingly easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server.

You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect instantaneously, you’ll be able to continue with the domain name transfer process without needing to wait for the lock status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not require more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
