Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through us is remarkably easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our shared hosting plans, and will take literally two clicks of the mouse. All your domain names will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you will notice a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you will notice the current status of the domain name. Click again and you will alter its status. The change will take effect instantaneously without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be ‘refreshed’ on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can initiate the transfer procedure right away.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can easily unlock it through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in your account and you’ll notice a mini padlock-like icon next to each domain there, on the condition that its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock option. You can find out if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and modify the current status by clicking on it again. You can then go ahead and initiate the domain transfer straight away without having to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, as the change will take effect momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
