All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many domain registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux web hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting 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 shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you will just have to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it, you can quickly unlock it via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to manage your semi-dedicated server account. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in your account and you will notice a mini padlock icon next to each domain name there, provided that its extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can find out whether the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and update the current status by clicking on it once again. You can then go ahead and initiate the domain name transfer straight away without the need to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, as the update will take effect instantaneously without you or us having to do anything else.
