All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a Linux hosting service from our company, you will exert full command over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through us, on the condition that the particular domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once again will permit you to alter that status. In case you want to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can quickly unlock it via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in your account and you will notice a small padlock-like icon on the right side of each domain name there, provided that its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock option. You can see if the domain is locked or not by clicking on this icon and modify the present status by clicking on it once again. You can then continue and initiate the domain name transfer procedure straight away without having to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, as the change will take effect instantly without you or us having to do anything else.
