All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to block unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting from our company, you will 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 just several 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 small padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click for the second time and you will be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domains with us is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you will find out if the given domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated instantaneously and you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer process without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
