All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to stop unwanted transfers of active domain names. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains 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 owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to block any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a small padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just need to click once again and you will be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different admin panels.
