All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better 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 an individual who has access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you buy a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it, you can quickly unlock it via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to manage your semi-dedicated server account. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in your account and you will see a tiny padlock icon next to each domain name there, provided that its extension supports the registrar lock option. You can see if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and change the present status by clicking on it again. You can then go ahead and initiate the domain transfer right away without having to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup websites, as the change will take effect momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
