All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many domain registry organizations that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security 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 person who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
With a Linux cloud web hosting service from us, you’ll exert full authority over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the particular top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will permit you to modify that status. In case you would 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 instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is truly easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate right away, you will be able to continue with the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
