All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to block unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

If you buy a Linux hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just have to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different platforms.
