All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing 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 an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will exert complete command over your domain names through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, provided that the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this option. 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 on it once again will permit you to update that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the process instantly. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’d like to transfer a domain from our company to another domain name registrar and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain name ready with only several mouse clicks. All your domain names will be displayed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the exact same tool via which you will manage your hosting account. If a particular gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll notice a padlock-like icon. You can find out whether the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can update the status by clicking again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will have to do, so you can start the domain transfer procedure straight away. The update will propagate instantly, so you won’t have to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
