All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unapproved transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry operators that manage ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a Linux hosting package from us, you will exert total authority over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, provided that the specific TLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to alter that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.
