All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unapproved transfers of active domain names. Many domain name registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click for the second time and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domains with us is very easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you will find out whether the given domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking again. The status will be updated immediately and you’ll be able to start the transfer procedure without having to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
