All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Hosting
If you get a hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a tiny padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panels.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domain names with our company is amazingly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock icon in case the given domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will see if the given domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to update this status by clicking once more. The status will change instantaneously and you’ll be able to start the transfer without needing to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
