All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unauthorized transfers of active domains. Many registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. 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 company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to impede any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

If you get a Linux shared service from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just have to click once again and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different platforms.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer a domain from our company to another domain registrar and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain name ready with just a couple of mouse clicks. All your domain name registrations will be shown in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the same tool via which you will administer your web hosting account. If a particular gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like icon. You can find out if the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can update the status by clicking once again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will have to do, so you can start the domain name transfer procedure straight away. The change will take effect instantaneously, so you will not need to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
