All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from us, you’ll exert full authority over your domain names through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, provided that the specific domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will enable you to change that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the very same steps.
