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 organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is incredibly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our shared website hosting services, and will take exactly two mouse clicks. All your domain names will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will see a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will see the domain’s present status. Click for the second time and you’ll change its status. The change will propagate immediately without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can continue with the transfer process straight away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is astonishingly easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate right away, you’ll be able to initiate the domain name transfer process without waiting for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
