All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

With a Linux website hosting package from us, you will have absolute authority over your domains through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, provided that the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once again will allow you to change that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the very same steps.
