All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to block unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every website hosting package that we offer, will grant you total command over your domain names. You will see all domain names registered through our company neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the given domain name is locked or unlocked and you can update the present status by clicking once again – the procedure is as straightforward as that. You won’t need to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you see something else on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the info that they show.
