All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unauthorized transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

If you get a Linux hosting 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 just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domain names with us is very easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be listed in alphabetical order 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 on the icon, you will see whether the given domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will change immediately and you’ll be able to start the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
