All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name 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 company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a Linux cloud web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a tiny padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you will just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away, you can quickly unlock it through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to manage your semi-dedicated server account. All domain name registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in your account and you’ll see a small padlock-like icon next to each domain name there, on the condition that its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can see if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and update the present status by clicking on it once again. You can then proceed and initiate the domain name transfer straight away without having to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites, as the update will take effect instantly without you or us having to do anything else.
