All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain 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 company can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a web hosting from us, you will exercise full control over your domains 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 us, as long as the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will permit you to change that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the process instantly. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the very same steps.
