All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting
With a shared website hosting plan from our company, you will exert full authority over your domain names through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, on the condition that the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will permit you to alter that status. If you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to complete the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domains with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll see a padlock-like icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you will find out whether the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking once more. The status will change instantly and you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer without needing to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
