All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to block unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety 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 name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting from our company, you’ll have complete authority over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the particular TLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock sign that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to change that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the exact same steps.
