All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every hosting plan that we offer, will give you total control over your domains. You will see all domain names registered through us neatly listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a small padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can alter the present status by clicking once again – the procedure is as straightforward as that. You won’t need to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect momentarily, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the details that they display.
