All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to prevent unauthorized transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry operators that manage ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. 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 registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting from our company, you will 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 just several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a small padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different admin consoles.
