All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is truly easy. This can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud website hosting, and will require exactly two clicks. All your domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will notice a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will see the domain name’s current status. Click again and you’ll change its status. The update will propagate instantly without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can continue with the transfer right away.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing your domain names with our company is very easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domains registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock-like icon in case the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will see if the given domain is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking once more. The status will change right away and you will be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
