All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
With a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you will have total authority over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you will see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to edit that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the exact same steps.
