All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to block unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
With a shared web hosting package from us, you will exert complete authority over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the particular TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to update that status. If you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can start the process momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the exact same steps.

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is really easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server.

You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantly, you’ll be able to go ahead with the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
