All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to hinder unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a Linux hosting from our company, you will have full command over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the particular domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will enable you to edit that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to go through the very same steps.
