All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars 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 package that we offer, will grant you total authority over your domains. You will see all domain names registered through us neatly listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a small padlock icon next to them. 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 straightforward as that. You won’t have to wait for the update to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect instantly, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such websites to ‘refresh’ the details that they show.
