All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unauthorized transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise ccTLDs 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 name registrants. 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 can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to impede any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer, will give you absolute authority over your domain names. You’ll see all domains registered through us conveniently displayed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can see if the specific domain name is locked or unlocked and you can update the present status by clicking again – the process is as straightforward as that. You will not have to wait for the change to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you see something else on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the info that they show.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is truly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and those 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 straight away, you’ll be able to start the domain transfer procedure without waiting for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not take more than a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
