All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unauthorized transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is amazingly easy. This can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting, and will require exactly two clicks of the mouse. All your domains will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will notice a padlock-like sign. Click on it once and you’ll see the domain’s present status. Click once more and you will change its status. The update will propagate momentarily without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can go ahead with the transfer process right away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer a domain name from our company to another domain registrar and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to get the domain ready with only a few clicks of the mouse. All your domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the exact same tool via which you’ll manage your hosting account. If a specific generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll see a padlock icon. You can see whether the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can update the status by clicking for a second time. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will have to do, so you can initiate the domain name transfer procedure right away. The change will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites.
