All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry operators that manage country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name 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 registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared plan from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us via 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 Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just need to click once again and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different tools.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domain names with our company is incredibly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right you’ll notice a padlock-like icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will find out whether the given domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to update this status by clicking once again. The status will change right away and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer without having to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
