All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security 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 accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to impede any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is unbelievably easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting, and will require literally two mouse clicks. All your domain names will be displayed alphabetically in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you’ll notice the domain name’s present status. Click for the second time and you’ll alter its status. The change will propagate momentarily without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer procedure right away.
