All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of registry operators that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every hosting package that we offer, will grant you full authority over your domain names. You will see all domain names registered through our company neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a small padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the given domain name is locked or unlocked and you can modify the current status by clicking once again – the process is as simple as that. You won’t need to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you see something different on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the info that they display.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is extremely easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantaneously, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the lock status to change on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
