All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unapproved transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name 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 domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you purchase a Linux cloud plan from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different platforms.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away, you can easily unlock it through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All domain name registrations will be listed alphabetically in your account and you will notice a small padlock icon next to each domain name there, as long as its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock option. You can see whether the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and alter the present status by clicking on it again. You can then go ahead and initiate the domain name transfer straight away without needing to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, as the change will take effect momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
