All generic top-level domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to impede unsolicited transfers of active domains. Many domain name registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for greater security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated deliberately, so as to block any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security 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 Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud web hosting package that we offer, will grant you absolute control over your domains. You’ll see all domain names registered through our company neatly listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a tiny padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can see if the particular domain is locked or unlocked and you can modify the present status by clicking again – the process is as straightforward as that. You will not need to wait for the update to propagate or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect immediately, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the info that they show.
