All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is really easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our cloud plans, and will take exactly two clicks. All your domains will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like symbol. Click on it once and you’ll notice the domain’s current status. Click again and you will alter its status. The update will take effect momentarily without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can continue with the transfer right away.
