All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unauthorized transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater 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 been granted access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a Linux shared web hosting service from our company, you’ll have complete command over your domain names through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it for the second time will permit you to change that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time 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 us is exceptionally easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate instantaneously, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain name transfer process without waiting for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and opt 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 in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
