All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that manage ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is truly easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud packages, and will take exactly two clicks. All your domains will be listed in alphabetical order in the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like sign. Click on it once and you’ll notice the domain name’s current status. Click once again and you’ll alter its status. The update will propagate immediately without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer procedure right away.
