All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to hinder unapproved transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise 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 name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, will give you absolute command over your domains. You will find all domain names registered through us conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a mini padlock icon on their right. By clicking on the icon, you can see if the specific domain name is locked or unlocked and you can update the present status by clicking once more – the procedure is as simple as that. You won’t have to wait for the update to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect instantly, even if you see something else on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to ‘refresh’ the information that they show.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domain names with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock icon in case the given domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll find out if the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking again. The status will be updated right away and you will be able to initiate the domain transfer without the need to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
