All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to stop unapproved transfers of active domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name 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 domain registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a Linux shared hosting from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a tiny padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once more and you will 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 will not have to log in and out of different platforms.
