All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to impede unwanted transfers of active domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name 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 on purpose, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
If you get a Linux web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once again and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same place as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different user interfaces.
