All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better 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 an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Website Hosting
With a Linux website hosting service from our company, you’ll have complete control over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, provided that the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once again will enable you to alter that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the exact same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is remarkably easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect momentarily, you’ll be able to go ahead with the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not take more than several clicks in your Control Panel.
