All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to impede unwanted transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain registered through us is amazingly easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, and will require literally two clicks of the mouse. 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’ll see a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will notice the domain’s present status. Click again and you will alter its status. The update will take effect momentarily 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 proceed with the transfer procedure right away.
