All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to block unauthorized transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that manage ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a cloud service from our company, you’ll be able to administer 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 few mouse clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a tiny padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different systems.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing your domains with our company is amazingly easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains 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 shown in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll notice a padlock icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you’ll find out whether the given domain name 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 needing to wait for the change to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
