All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to hinder unapproved transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry operators that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of 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 person who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
With a cloud web hosting plan from us, you will have total command over your domain names through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, provided that the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to change that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.
