All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that 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 activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Hosting
With a Linux hosting package from our company, you will exercise complete control over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, as long as the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will allow you to change that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can start the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the exact same steps.
