All generic domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry operators that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to impede any unwanted transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been introduced over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud web hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just several mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a tiny padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it, you will just need to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different platforms.
