All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to block unapproved transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
With a shared web hosting plan from us, you will have full command 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 domains registered through us, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock logo that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will allow you to alter that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.
