All generic TLD extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to block unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Lots of registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of adopting it for better security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to prevent any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is one of the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domains between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

With a Linux shared web hosting service from us, you will have absolute authority over your domain names through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the specific domain extension supports this feature.

If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can start the procedure 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 required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.
