All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of adopting it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a tiny padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once more and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels.
