All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a small padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domain names with us is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock-like icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you’ll see if the given domain is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once more. The status will be changed instantly and you will be able to initiate the domain transfer process without the need to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
