All generic extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to block unapproved transfers of existing domain names. Many registry organizations that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar company can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to prevent any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every hosting package that we offer, will grant you absolute command over your domain names. You will see all domains registered through our company conveniently displayed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking on the icon, you can find out if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can modify the current status by clicking once again – the procedure is as simple as that. You will not have to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect instantaneously, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such sites to ‘refresh’ the info that they show.
