All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unauthorized transfers of active domains. Many registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing 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 been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Hosting
With a hosting from our company, you’ll have full control over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, as long as the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will allow you to change that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to follow the exact same steps.
