All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to hinder unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety 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 registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting from our company, you will exert complete control over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, provided that the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you will see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will allow you to alter that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you wish to transfer a domain from our company to another domain registrar and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with only a few clicks. All your domain names will be shown in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you’ll administer your hosting account. If a specific generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll see a padlock icon. You can find out if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can alter the status by clicking once again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will need to do, so you can start the domain transfer process straight away. The change will take effect momentarily, so you won’t need to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
