All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

If you buy a Linux hosting from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you will just have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same place as the hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different user interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domains with our company is extremely easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock-like icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll find out if the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated immediately and you will be able to start the transfer without needing to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
