All generic domain name extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Lots of domain registry organizations that manage country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to stop any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Website Hosting
If you get a Linux website hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different admin dashboards.
