All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Website Hosting
With a website hosting from us, you will have total command over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through us, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to alter that status. In case you want to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the exact same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is truly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate momentarily, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain transfer procedure without waiting for the status to be changed on WHOIS sites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
