All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to hinder unwanted transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. 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 name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting package from us, you’ll exert full control over your domains through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, as long as the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will permit you to edit that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is exceptionally 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 Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect straight away, you will be able to go ahead with the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
