All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unauthorized transfers of active domains. Many domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains 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 name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to impede any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will 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 hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different tools.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing your domain names with our company is incredibly easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be displayed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon in case the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you’ll see whether the particular domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once more. The status will be changed straight away and you will be able to initiate the transfer process without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
