All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to block unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Many domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a web hosting from our company, you will have complete authority over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, provided that the specific TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to change that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the process straight away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with us is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock-like icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will see if the given domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated instantaneously and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure without the need to wait for the change to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
