All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from our company, you will have absolute control over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the specific TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it for the second time will allow you to modify that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the process straight away. 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 will just need to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is extremely 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 domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones 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 right away, you will be able to start the transfer without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to change on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not take more than several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
