All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry operators that manage country-code TLDs 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 name registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains 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 grant you full command over your domains. You’ll find all domain names registered through our company conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can see if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can alter the present status by clicking once more – the procedure is as straightforward as that. You won’t need to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect immediately, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to ‘refresh’ the info that they show.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domains with us is amazingly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon in case the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you’ll find out if the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will be changed momentarily and you’ll be able to initiate the transfer process without needing to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
