All generic top-level domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unapproved transfers of active domains. Many domain name registry operators that oversee country-code Top-Level Domains that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name owners. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically 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 current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just need to click for the second time and you will 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 won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces.
