All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of active domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you order a Linux cloud service from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a tiny padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you will just need to click for the second time and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer a domain from our company to another domain registrar and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with only a couple of mouse clicks. All your domains will be listed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the same tool via which you’ll administer your hosting account. If a particular gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like icon. You can see if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can modify the status by clicking again. This is all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will need to do, so you can proceed with the transfer right away. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you won’t have to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup websites.
