All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Many registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to block any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
If you buy a shared hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting 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 alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you will just have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different platforms.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is unbelievably easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect immediately, you will be able to proceed with the domain name transfer procedure without waiting for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS sites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not require more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
