All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Many domain name registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to impede any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a small padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you will just have to click for the second time and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels.
