All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unwanted transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to impede any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is incredibly easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our hosting, and will require exactly two clicks of the mouse. All your domains will be shown alphabetically in the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will notice the domain name’s current status. Click once more and you’ll change its status. The update will take effect instantaneously without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can go ahead with the transfer process straight away.
