All generic extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain registered through us is very easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our hosting, and will require exactly two mouse clicks. All your domains will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will notice a padlock-like symbol. Click on it once and you’ll see the domain name’s current status. Click once more and you’ll alter its status. The change will take effect immediately without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can initiate the transfer procedure right away.
