All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many registry operators that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t 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 name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting from us, you will have full control over your domain names through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, provided that the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it for the second time will enable you to modify that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to go through the very same steps.
