All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Many registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you get a Linux cloud package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us using 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 in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different admin panels.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is incredibly easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate instantaneously, you will be able to continue with the transfer process without the need to wait for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Control Panel.
