All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Many registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing 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 registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

If you get a Linux website hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you will just have to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain 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 log in and out of different Control Panel tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is truly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting 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 those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature 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 right away, you’ll be able to go ahead with the transfer process without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to change on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your hosting Control Panel.
