All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a Linux cloud web hosting package from us, you will have total authority over your domains through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, as long as the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once again will permit you to alter that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure straight away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to follow the very same steps.

If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a few mouse clicks in your Control Panel.
