All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
With a shared web hosting from us, you’ll exert complete command over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the specific top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will allow you to update that status. If you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can start the procedure right away. 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 is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the exact same steps.
