All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting from our company, you will exercise complete control over your domain names through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the specific domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you will see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will permit you to edit that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the very same steps.
