All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many domain registry operators that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from us, you’ll have total command over your domains through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, provided that the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock logo that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will permit you to edit that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can start the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is incredibly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate straight away, you will be able to proceed with the domain name transfer process without waiting for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not take more than several clicks of the mouse in your Control Panel.
