All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to stop any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer, will give you total command over your domain names. You’ll find all domains registered through us conveniently displayed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the given domain is locked or unlocked and you can update the present status by clicking once again – the process is as straightforward as that. You won’t need to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect momentarily, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to ‘refresh’ the details that they show.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is really easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be listed alphabetically and on the right you will notice a padlock icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you’ll find out whether the specific domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to update this status by clicking once again. The status will be changed immediately and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer without needing to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
