All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to stop unauthorized transfers of active domains. Many domain registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is amazingly easy. This can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared website hosting, and will take exactly two 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 domain lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will see the current status of the domain. Click again and you will change its status. The update will propagate momentarily 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 proceed with the transfer procedure straight away.
