All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Many registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting from us, you will exercise full control over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it for the second time will allow you to update that status. If you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is truly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll 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 by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect instantaneously, you will be able to continue with the domain transfer process without the need to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your hosting Control Panel.
