All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better 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 registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting service from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a tiny padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domains with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right you will see a padlock-like icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will find out whether the given domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will be updated right away and you will be able to start the domain transfer procedure without having to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
