All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Many domain registry operators that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through us is incredibly easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our cloud website hosting plans, and will require exactly two clicks of the mouse. All your domain names will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like symbol. Click on it once and you will notice the domain’s present status. Click once more and you will change its status. The update will take effect instantaneously without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer right away.
