All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to impede unapproved transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain 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 do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared plan from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different admin consoles.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with us is incredibly easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right you will notice a padlock icon in case the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you’ll find out if the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to modify this status by clicking once again. The status will be changed instantly and you will be able to initiate the transfer without needing to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
