All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unapproved transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. 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 domain names are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting package from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer a domain from our company to another registrar and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain name ready with only several clicks. All your domain name registrations will be shown in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the exact same tool via which you’ll manage your hosting account. If a specific gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. You can find out if the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can change the status by clicking once again. This is all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will have to do, so you can start the transfer procedure right away. The update will take effect instantly, so you won’t have to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites.
