All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

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