All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater 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 person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option 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 Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting from us, you will exercise absolute authority over your domain names through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, as long as the particular top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will permit you to edit that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is truly 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 feature will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect instantaneously, you’ll be able to go ahead with the transfer without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to be updated on WHOIS sites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
