All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unauthorized transfers of existing domain names. Many domain registry organizations that manage 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 a person who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every website hosting plan that we offer, will give you full control over your domain names. You will find all domains registered through us neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a mini padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the given domain name is locked or unlocked and you can alter the current status by clicking once more – the procedure is as simple as that. You won’t have to wait for the change to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you see something else on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the info that they show.
