All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud hosting from us, you’ll exercise complete control over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it for the second time will permit you to change that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure right 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 needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can easily unlock it through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All domain registrations will be displayed alphabetically in your account and you’ll notice a mini padlock icon next to each domain there, on the condition that its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can find out whether the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and change the present status by clicking on it once more. You can then proceed and initiate the transfer procedure straight away without the need to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites, as the update will propagate instantly without you or us having to do anything else.
