All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to impede unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Many domain registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
With a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you will exercise full authority over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered here, as long as the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will permit you to change that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to complete the very same steps.
