All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a small padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domains with us is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right you will see a padlock-like icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll see whether the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to modify this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated instantly and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer process without having to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
