All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain 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 domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is truly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our shared website hosting, and will require exactly two clicks. All your domain names will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like sign. Click on it once and you’ll notice the domain’s current status. Click again and you will change its status. The change will take effect instantly 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.
