All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to impede unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a hosting service from our company, you will have full control over your domain names through our in-house 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, as long as the particular domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it for the second time will enable you to alter that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is exceptionally easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate instantaneously, you’ll be able to go ahead with the transfer without needing to wait for the lock status to be changed on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
