All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to block unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting from us, you will have complete authority over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered here, as long as the particular domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will enable you to alter that status. If you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.
