All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unauthorized transfers of active domains. Many registry organizations 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 name 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 activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you will just need to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domain names with our company is very easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domain names registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will see whether the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking again. The status will be updated right away and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer process without needing to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
