All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to hinder unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. 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 accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer, will grant you total command over your domain names. You will see all domains registered through us neatly listed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a small padlock icon next to them. By clicking on the icon, you can see if the specific domain name is locked or unlocked and you can change the present status by clicking once more – the process is as straightforward as that. You won’t have to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect momentarily, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to ‘refresh’ the information that they show.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is truly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock-like icon in case the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will find out whether the particular domain name is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking once more. The status will change instantaneously and you will be able to start the domain transfer without the need to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
