All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to impede unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to impede any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

With a website hosting from us, you will exert complete control over your domains through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered here, as long as the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will permit you to edit that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is unbelievably easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate immediately, you will be able to proceed with the transfer procedure without waiting for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
