All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many domain registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a cloud web hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different admin panels.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domain names with our company is really easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock-like icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you will see whether the given domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking again. The status will be changed instantly and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
