All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. 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 domain registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

With a Linux website hosting package from our company, you will have absolute command over your domains through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will allow you to edit that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the exact same steps.
