All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting 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 granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

If you purchase a shared website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just have to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domain names with our company is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll find out whether the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated right away and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the change to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
