All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to impede any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

If you purchase a shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you will just have to click for the second time and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to log in and out of different systems.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with us is amazingly easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock-like icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll find out if the particular domain is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once more. The status will be changed straight away and you’ll be able to start the domain transfer without having to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
