All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain 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 registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to stop any unwanted 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 Hosting

If you order a Linux hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a small padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you’ll just need to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same place as the hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is unbelievably easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate right away, you will be able to proceed with the transfer process without the need to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
