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 domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain registrants. 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 achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is amazingly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting, and will take exactly two clicks. 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 domain lock option, you will see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will notice the current status of the domain name. Click again 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 ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer process right away.
