All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. 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 registrar company can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting plan that we offer, will give you full command over your domains. You will see all domain names registered through us conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a small padlock icon on their right. By clicking on the icon, you can find out if the given domain name is locked or unlocked and you can change the current status by clicking once more – the procedure is as simple as that. You will not have to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the info that they show.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is really easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate instantly, you’ll be able to initiate the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Control Panel.
