All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unapproved transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better 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 person who has access to the account with the current domain name registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer, will give you full control over your domains. You will find all domain names registered through us conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a mini padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can see if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can alter the current status by clicking once more – the process is as simple as that. You won’t need to wait for the change to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such websites to update the details that they show.
