All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent 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 greater 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 person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud website hosting package that we offer, will give you absolute control over your domain names. You’ll see all domains registered through our company conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a mini padlock icon next to them. By clicking on the icon, you can find out if the specific domain is locked or unlocked and you can modify the current status by clicking again – the process is as simple as that. You will not have to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the info that they display.
