All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a mini padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away, you can easily unlock it via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All domain registrations will be displayed alphabetically in your account and you’ll see a mini padlock icon next to each domain name there, as long as its extension supports the registrar lock option. You can find out whether the domain is locked or not by clicking on this icon and alter the current status by clicking on it once more. You can then proceed and initiate the domain transfer process right away without the need to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites, as the update will take effect instantly without you or us having to do anything else.
