All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
If you order a web hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a small padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it away, you will just have to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domains with our company is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock feature makes no 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 will manage your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will find out if the specific domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will be updated straight away and you will be able to start the transfer without having to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
