All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to impede any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud package from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a small padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just have to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different systems.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’d like to transfer a domain from our company to another registrar company and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with only a couple of mouse clicks. All your domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the same tool via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. If a given generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. You can see if the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can change the status by clicking once again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will need to do, so you can initiate the transfer procedure straight away. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you will not need to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites.
