All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to prevent unwanted transfers of active domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of adopting it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted 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 stop any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of active domains between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, will give you complete command over your domain names. You will find all domain names registered through our company neatly listed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a mini padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can see if the given domain is locked or unlocked and you can update the current status by clicking once again – the process 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 immediately, even if you notice something else on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to ‘refresh’ the details that they show.
