All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better 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 an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud service from our company, you’ll exercise full authority over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, as long as the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock logo that you will see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will enable you to edit that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is truly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate instantaneously, you will be able to go ahead with the transfer without the need to wait for the lock status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
