All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unauthorized transfers of existing domain names. Lots of registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud package from us, you will exercise full control over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, as long as the specific TLD extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock logo that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will allow you to change that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the exact same steps.
