All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name 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 name registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer, will give you absolute control over your domains. You’ll see all domains registered through our company neatly listed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a mini padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can see if the given domain name is locked or unlocked and you can modify the present status by clicking once more – the process is as straightforward as that. You will not have to wait for the update to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the details that they display.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer a domain name from our company to another registrar company and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to get the domain name ready with just a couple of clicks. All your domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you’ll manage your hosting account. If a given gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock feature, you will see a padlock icon. You can find out if the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can update the status by clicking once again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will have to do, so you can proceed with the transfer process straight away. The update will take effect instantly, so you will not need to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites.
