All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
With a Linux cloud website hosting package from us, you will exert absolute authority over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will permit you to edit that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer a domain from our company to another registrar company and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with only a few clicks. All your domains will be shown in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. If a particular generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll notice a padlock-like icon. You can find out if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can alter the status by clicking once again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will have to do, so you can initiate the transfer process straight away. The change will propagate immediately, so you will not have to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
