All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to prevent unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled on purpose, so as to stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud plan from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards.
