All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unwanted transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain owners. 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 domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer, will grant you absolute authority over your domain names. You’ll find all domains registered through our company conveniently displayed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the specific domain name is locked or unlocked and you can change the current status by clicking once more – the procedure is as simple as that. You will not need to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect instantly, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such sites to ‘refresh’ the info that they display.
