All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to block unwanted transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through us is truly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting, and will require exactly two clicks of the mouse. All your domain names will be listed alphabetically in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will see the present status of the domain. Click for the second time and you’ll change its status. The change will propagate immediately without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can proceed with the transfer procedure straight away.
