All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer, will grant you complete control over your domain names. You will find all domain names registered through us conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the specific domain is locked or unlocked and you can update the current status by clicking once again – the process is as straightforward as that. You will not need to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect instantaneously, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to ‘refresh’ the details that they display.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is astonishingly easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domain names registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be listed alphabetically and on the right you’ll notice a padlock-like 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 will be able to modify this status by clicking again. The status will be changed immediately and you’ll be able to start the transfer process without needing to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
