All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry organizations that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to hinder any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini 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 have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different admin consoles.
