All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t 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 can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Hosting
If you order a hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a small padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, 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 domains are managed in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different platforms.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Administering your domains with us is really easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you’ll find out if the given domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking once more. The status will change straight away and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the change to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
