All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Many domain registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security 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 a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just several clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you will just need to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different admin consoles.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you want to transfer a domain name from our company to another domain name registrar and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with only a few clicks of the mouse. All your domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the same tool via which you’ll administer your hosting account. If a particular gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll notice a padlock icon. You can see whether the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can change the status by clicking again. This is all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will have to do, so you can initiate the transfer process straight away. The update will propagate instantly, so you will not have to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
