All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many domain registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a hosting service from our company, you will exercise absolute control 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 here, provided that the specific TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to update that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is extremely easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate right away, you’ll be able to continue with the domain name transfer without waiting for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
