All generic TLD extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to stop unwanted transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code top-level domain names that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting
With a Linux shared website hosting from us, you will exercise absolute authority over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, as long as the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it for the second time will allow you to update that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the very same steps.
