All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is exceptionally easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our web hosting plans, and will require exactly two clicks. All your domains will be shown in alphabetical order in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will notice the domain name’s current status. Click once again and you’ll change its status. The update will propagate immediately without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can initiate the transfer process right away.
