All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to impede unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature 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 on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is truly easy. This can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our website 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 Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will notice a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will see the present status of the domain name. Click for the second time and you’ll alter its status. The update will propagate instantaneously without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can initiate the transfer procedure right away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock-like icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you will find out whether the given domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking again. The status will change momentarily and you will be able to start the domain transfer procedure without the need to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
