All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of active domain names. Many domain name registry operators that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to block any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a mini padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you’ll just have to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with our company is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right you will notice a padlock icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see if the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to modify this status by clicking again. The status will change instantaneously and you will be able to initiate the transfer without the need to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
