All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry operators that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a Linux hosting package from our company, you will have full authority over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, on the condition that the particular TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will allow you to change that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the process momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to follow the exact same steps.
