All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unauthorized transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names 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 registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you will just need to click for the second time and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with us is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be shown alphabetically and on the right you’ll see a padlock icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you will find out if the particular domain name is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking once more. The status will change straight away and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer without the need to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
