All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unwanted transfers of active domain names. Many domain name registry operators that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to impede any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a Linux cloud web hosting package 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 several clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a small padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing your domain names with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domain names registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock-like icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will find out if the particular domain is locked or not and you will be able to alter this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated momentarily and you’ll be able to initiate the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
