Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is remarkably easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our Linux shared hosting plans, and will require literally two clicks. All your domains will be displayed alphabetically in the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will see the domain’s current status. Click once again and you’ll alter its status. The change will propagate momentarily without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can initiate the transfer process straight away.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from our company to another registrar company and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to get the domain ready with just a few clicks. All your domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the exact same tool via which you will administer your hosting account. If a given gTLD or ccTLD supports the registrar lock option, you’ll notice a padlock icon. You can see whether the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can alter the status by clicking once more. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will have to do, so you can continue with the domain name transfer straight away. The update will take effect immediately, so you will not need to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
