All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to impede unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through us is extremely easy. This can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting, and will require literally two mouse clicks. All your domain names will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will see the domain name’s current status. Click again and you will change its status. The change will take effect momentarily without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can proceed with the transfer right away.
