All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry organizations 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 name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
If you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it, you will just have to click for the second time and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different admin panels.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Administering your domain names with us is incredibly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domain names registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will find out whether the particular domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking once again. The status will change immediately and you will be able to initiate the transfer process without needing to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
