All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to block unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry operators that manage country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better 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 an individual who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it, you’ll just need to click for the second time and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Administering your domains with us is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domain names registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll see a padlock icon in case the given domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll see whether the particular domain is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking once more. The status will change right away and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
