All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to block unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name 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 registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a small padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to transfer a domain from our company to another registrar company and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All your domain names will be displayed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you will administer your web hosting account. If a given generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock feature, you will notice a padlock-like icon. You can find out if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can modify the status by clicking once more. This is all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will need to do, so you can initiate the domain transfer procedure straight away. The update will propagate momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites.
