All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer, will give you absolute command over your domain names. You’ll find all domain names registered through our company neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a tiny padlock icon next to them. By clicking on the icon, you can find out if the given domain is locked or unlocked and you can change the current status by clicking again – the procedure is as simple as that. You won’t need to wait for the change to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect instantly, 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.
