All generic top-level domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to block any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

If you purchase a hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it, you will just have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same place as the hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different tools.
