All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is remarkably easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud website hosting service, and will require literally two mouse clicks. All your domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will see the domain’s current status. Click again and you will alter its status. The change will propagate instantly without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can go ahead with the transfer straight away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer a domain name from our company to another registrar company and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain name ready with only several mouse clicks. All your domain registrations will be shown in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you will manage your web hosting account. If a given gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock feature, you will notice a padlock-like icon. You can see if the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can modify the status by clicking once more. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will have to do, so you can proceed with the transfer procedure straight away. The change will propagate immediately, so you will not have to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
