All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain name registry operators that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain name 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 registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
With a Linux cloud hosting from us, you will exert absolute control over your domain names through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through us, on the condition that the particular domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to alter that status. If you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to follow the exact same steps.
