All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to prevent unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it away, you will just need to click once more and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domains with our company is really easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be displayed alphabetically and on the right you will notice a padlock-like icon in case the given domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you’ll find out whether the particular domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once again. The status will be changed instantly and you’ll be able to initiate the domain 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.
