All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to hinder unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry operators that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
If you purchase a cloud website hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you’ll just need to click for the second time and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to log in and out of different admin dashboards.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is astonishingly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option 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 right away, you will be able to proceed with the transfer procedure without waiting for the lock status to be changed on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
