All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs 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 name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

If you get a hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just have to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different platforms.
