All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name 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 domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
With a Linux cloud web hosting service from us, you’ll exercise total authority over your domain names through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, as long as the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll 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 allow you to alter that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is amazingly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate straight away, you will be able to go ahead with the domain transfer without waiting for the status to be changed on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than a couple of clicks in your Control Panel.
