All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Lots of 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 security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a shared package from our company, you’ll have absolute control over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the particular TLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will permit you to change that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to go through the very same steps.
