All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security 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 access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to block any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a Linux cloud web hosting package from us, you will exert full control over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the specific top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you will see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it for the second time will permit you to update that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can start the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to complete the exact same steps.
