All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to block unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a Linux cloud web hosting from our company, you’ll exert total authority over your domain names through our custom-built 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 domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will permit you to edit that status. In case you want to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to follow the exact same steps.
