All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain 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 registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud plan from us, you will exercise absolute authority over your domains through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through us, as long as the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will permit you to update that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is remarkably easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domain names 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 name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect instantaneously, you will be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the status to change on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than a few clicks of the mouse in your hosting Control Panel.
