All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unauthorized transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains 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 owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer, will give you absolute authority over your domain names. You’ll find all domains registered through our company conveniently displayed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a tiny padlock icon next to them. By clicking on the icon, you can find out if the particular domain is locked or unlocked and you can update the present status by clicking once again – the process is as simple as that. You will not need to wait for the update to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect immediately, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the details that they display.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domains with us is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon in case the given domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see if the particular domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to update this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated immediately and you will be able to initiate the transfer procedure without having to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
