All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to block unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name 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 domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is exceptionally easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate instantaneously, you’ll be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the lock status to change on WHOIS lookup websites. If you reconsider your decision and opt 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 of the mouse in your hosting Control Panel.
