All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a Linux shared web hosting package from our company, you will exert total command over your domains through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, as long as the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will enable you to change that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process instantly. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, 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 complete the very same steps.

You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate instantaneously, you will be able to continue with the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
