All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to impede unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry operators that oversee country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock icon. Clicking 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 have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different platforms.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with our company is very 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 domains registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will find out if the particular domain is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking again. The status will be changed right away and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
