All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains 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 registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it, you will just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domain names with our company is really easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock-like icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see whether the particular domain is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking once again. The status will change instantaneously and you’ll be able to start the domain transfer process without the need to wait for the change to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
