All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Many domain registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you will exercise absolute control over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through us, as long as the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will enable you to edit that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the very same steps.
