All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of active domain names. Many domain registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been given access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every website hosting plan that we offer, will give you complete authority over your domain names. You’ll find all domains registered through our company conveniently displayed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a tiny padlock icon on their right. By clicking the icon, you can see if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can alter the current status by clicking once again – the procedure is as straightforward as that. You won’t have to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect instantly, even if you see something else on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the details that they show.
