All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unsolicited transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain 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 enabled on purpose, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the same place as the hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is astonishingly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domains in the Registered Domains section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate straight away, you will be able to go ahead with the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
