All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
With a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you will exert full control over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will allow you to edit that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to complete the exact same steps.
