All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to block unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that manage 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 owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud service from our company, you will exercise complete command over your domain names through our custom-built 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 domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it for the second time will enable you to edit that status. In case you want to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the process right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to go through the exact same steps.
