All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to impede unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Lots of registry operators that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared service from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domain names with our company is amazingly easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will find out whether the specific domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated momentarily and you will be able to start the transfer procedure without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
