All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to block unapproved transfers of active domains. Many domain registry operators that manage country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this feature 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 a person who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated on purpose, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
If you purchase a cloud website hosting service from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a tiny padlock icon. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you will just need to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different platforms.
