All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unapproved transfers of active domains. Many domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, will give you complete command over your domains. You’ll see all domain names registered through us neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can see if the given domain is locked or unlocked and you can modify the present status by clicking once more – the process is as straightforward as that. You will not need to wait for the change to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect instantly, even if you see something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the info that they display.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is remarkably easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate straight away, you will be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without waiting for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
