All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person 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 deliberately, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

If you get a Linux shared hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is amazingly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Registered Domains section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect immediately, you’ll be able to proceed with the transfer process without needing to wait for the lock status to change on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
