All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unauthorized transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted 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 stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

If you buy a shared hosting package from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click once again and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is extremely easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate immediately, you’ll be able to continue with the domain name transfer process without waiting for the registrar lock status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks in your Control Panel.
