All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to prevent unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting package from us, you will exert absolute control over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will permit you to update that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can start the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to complete the very same steps.

The status will be updated instantly and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
