All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to block unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain 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 accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
With a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company, you will exert full control over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you will find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will allow you to edit that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is really easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantaneously, you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer without waiting for the status to change on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Control Panel.
