All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unwanted transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to impede any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is among the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is astonishingly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect momentarily, you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer without waiting for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
