All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unwanted transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to block any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting service from our company, you’ll exercise full authority over your domain names through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, provided that the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will enable you to alter that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can start the procedure straight away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is very easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate straight away, you’ll be able to go ahead with the domain transfer process without having to wait for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
