All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to impede unauthorized transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to impede any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Website Hosting
With a Linux website hosting package from us, you’ll have complete authority over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock logo that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will allow you to change that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.
