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

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

With a website hosting service from our company, you will have total authority over your domain names through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, as long as the specific domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will allow you to modify that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process straight away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domain names with us is really easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll find out whether the given domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated instantly and you’ll be able to start the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
