All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unauthorized transfers of active domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to stop any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is extremely easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our shared web hosting, and will require exactly two clicks of the mouse. All your domains will be listed in alphabetical order in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will notice the domain name’s present status. Click for the second time and you will alter its status. The update will take effect momentarily without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer process straight away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is incredibly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate immediately, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain transfer without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to change on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
