All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many registry operators that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain 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 accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to block any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every website hosting package that we offer, will give you absolute command over your domains. You will see all domains registered through us conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can see if the specific domain name is locked or unlocked and you can modify the current status by clicking once more – the process is as simple as that. You won’t need to wait for the change to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you see something else on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the info that they display.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is exceptionally easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect straight away, you will be able to continue with the transfer procedure without waiting for the status to be updated on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
