All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to hinder unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from our company, you will exercise full command over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, provided that the specific top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will enable you to edit that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the exact same steps.
