All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting service from our company, you will exert full command over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you will find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will allow you to modify that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to follow the very same steps.

For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right you will see a padlock icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you’ll see if the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will be updated instantaneously and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
