All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry operators that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is truly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our Linux shared web hosting, and will require exactly two mouse clicks. All your domains will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you will notice a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will notice the domain’s current status. Click once again and you will change its status. The update will propagate immediately without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer process straight away.
