All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is exceptionally easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our Linux cloud web hosting, and will require literally two mouse clicks. All your domains will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will notice the present status of the domain name. Click once again and you will alter its status. The change 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 sites, so you can initiate the transfer straight away.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is exceptionally easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate momentarily, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the registrar lock status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
