All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Many domain registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing 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 access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is unbelievably easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud web hosting packages, and will take exactly two clicks. All your domains will be listed in alphabetical order in the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you’ll notice the domain’s present status. Click again and you will alter its status. The update will take effect momentarily without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can proceed with the transfer straight away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer a domain from our company to another registrar company and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to get the domain name ready with only a couple of mouse clicks. All your domain names will be shown in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you will manage your web hosting account. If a particular gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll notice a padlock icon. You can see whether the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can change the status by clicking once again. This is all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will have to do, so you can go ahead with the transfer procedure straight away. The change will propagate immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
