All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose function is to prevent unsanctioned transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of 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 been granted access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock option enabled deliberately, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.

With a Linux cloud hosting from us, you will exercise total authority over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, as long as the specific domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock logo that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will permit you to change that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can start the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to go through the very same steps.
