All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unsolicited transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a shared web hosting from our company, you’ll have total control over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the particular domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will permit you to modify that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to follow the exact same steps.
