All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unapproved transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater 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 been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a hosting plan from our company, you will exercise absolute command over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will permit you to change that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.
