All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to stop unwanted transfers of active domains. Many registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
With a shared hosting from us, you will exert absolute command over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it for the second time will enable you to modify that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the process immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to follow the very same steps.
