All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to stop unwanted transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry operators that oversee country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to block any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a Linux hosting package from our company, you will have total authority over your domain names through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to alter that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to follow the very same steps.
