All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many domain registry operators that manage ccTLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a shared web hosting from us, you will exert total command over your domains through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to change that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can start the procedure immediately. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to go through the exact same steps.
