All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting 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 granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer 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 few clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock symbol. 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 will just have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools.
