All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to hinder unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry operators that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, will give you complete authority over your domain names. You’ll find all domains registered through us neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a mini padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can see if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can alter the present status by clicking once again – the procedure is as straightforward as that. You won’t need to wait for the change to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect immediately, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the details that they display.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it, you can easily unlock it through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to manage your semi-dedicated server account. All domain name registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in your account and you will notice a mini padlock-like icon next to each domain there, on the condition that its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can see whether the domain is locked or not by clicking on this icon and alter the current status by clicking on it once again. You can then continue and start the transfer right away without needing to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, as the update will propagate instantaneously without you or us having to do anything else.
