All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing 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 a person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to impede any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer, will give you full authority over your domains. You’ll see all domain names registered through our company neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a small padlock icon next to them. By clicking on the icon, you can find out if the given domain is locked or unlocked and you can update the current status by clicking again – the process is as simple as that. You will not need to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect immediately, even if you see something different on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the details that they show.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domains with us is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll see whether the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated instantly and you will be able to initiate the transfer procedure without the need to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
