All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to impede unwanted transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is exceptionally easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud web hosting, and will take exactly two mouse 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 domain lock option, you will notice a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will see the domain’s present status. Click for the second time and you’ll alter its status. The update will take effect instantaneously without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can continue with the transfer right away.
