All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry operators that supervise country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every website hosting package that we offer, will grant you complete control over your domains. You will find all domains registered through our company neatly 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 on the icon, you can see if the given domain name is locked or unlocked and you can change the current status by clicking again – the procedure is as simple as that. You will not have to wait for the update to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect instantaneously, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the details that they display.
