All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry organizations that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater 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 registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to impede any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you’ll have absolute control over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, as long as the particular generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to change that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to follow the exact same steps.
