All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unsolicited transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not 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 on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a tiny padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you will just need to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to log in and out of different systems.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is unbelievably easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate momentarily, you will be able to initiate the transfer process without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to change on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse in your Control Panel.
