All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud package from our company, you’ll have total authority over your domains through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, provided that the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you will see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will enable you to edit that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the procedure straight away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the exact same steps.
