All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry operators that oversee country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been given access to the account with the current domain name registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to stop any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a small padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the exact same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces.
