All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
With a shared web hosting from us, you’ll exercise absolute control over your domain names through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, on the condition that the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock logo that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will allow you to update that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can start the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the very same steps.
