All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry operators that oversee country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, will give you complete command over your domains. 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 mini padlock icon on their right. By clicking on the icon, you can find out if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can modify the present status by clicking once again – the process is as simple as that. You will not need to wait for the update to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you see something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the details that they display.
