All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to impede any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting plan from our company, you will exert total command over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the particular top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock icon that you will find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will allow you to alter that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it, you can quickly unlock it through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in your account and you will notice a mini padlock icon next to each domain name there, as long as its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can see whether the domain is locked or not by clicking on this icon and update the current status by clicking on it once more. You can then proceed and initiate the domain transfer process right away without having to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, as the change will take effect momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
