All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Many registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just several clicks. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click for the second time and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different admin dashboards.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domains with us is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domains registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right you’ll see a padlock-like icon in case the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you’ll see whether the specific domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will be changed right away and you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure without the need to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
