All generic extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that manage 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 name 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 company can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
With a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll exert full authority over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the specific gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will enable you to alter that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to follow the very same steps.
