All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing 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 an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to stop any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy a shared web hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different systems.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domains with our company is amazingly easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right you will see a padlock-like icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see if the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will be changed right away and you will be able to start the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
