All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry operators that manage ccTLDs that don’t 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 an individual who has been given access to the account with the current domain registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
If you purchase a Linux web hosting from our company, you will 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 just a few clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you will just have to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different user interfaces.
