All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to impede unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to block any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. 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 it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is amazingly easy and can be done 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 option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate instantaneously, you’ll be able to start the domain transfer without having to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than several mouse clicks in your Control Panel.
