All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many domain name registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of 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 a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a Linux shared web hosting from us, you will exert complete control over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the specific top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock sign that you will find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will allow you to modify that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to complete the exact same steps.
