All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to impede unsanctioned transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain registry operators that manage ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. 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 do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to impede any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

If you purchase a Linux web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a tiny padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you will just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different admin panels.
