All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to impede unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Many domain name registry operators that supervise country-code TLDs that do not support this feature are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain owners. 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 accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to prevent any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
If you buy a shared hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different interfaces.
