All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

If you buy a shared website hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several mouse 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 will notice a tiny padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domains with our company 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 domain names registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be displayed alphabetically and on the right you will see a padlock-like icon in case the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you will find out whether the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking once more. The status will change momentarily and you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure without needing to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
