All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Many domain registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to block any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a Linux hosting package from us, you will exert complete command over your domain names 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, provided that the specific gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock icon that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will permit you to update that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to complete the exact same steps.
