All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to block unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry operators that manage country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is truly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our cloud web hosting, and will require exactly two clicks of the mouse. All your domain names will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will notice a padlock-like symbol. Click on it once and you will see the present status of the domain name. Click once again and you’ll alter its status. The change will take effect instantaneously without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can go ahead with the transfer process straight away.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is remarkably easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Domain Manager 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 propagate momentarily, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain name transfer process without needing to wait for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than several clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
