All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to hinder unapproved transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a Linux shared package from us, you will have absolute control over your domain names through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through us, provided that the specific top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you will see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to alter that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.
