Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every shared web hosting package that we offer, will give you absolute control over your domain names. You will see all domains registered through us conveniently listed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a small padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can alter the present status by clicking once more – the process is as simple as that. You won’t need to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the change of the status takes effect instantaneously, even if you see something different on WHOIS lookup sites. After all, it takes time for such sites to ‘refresh’ the information that they show.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can easily unlock it through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All domain registrations will be listed alphabetically in your account and you will see a mini padlock-like icon on the right side of each domain there, as long as its generic or country-code extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can see whether the domain is locked or not by clicking on this icon and modify the present status by clicking on it again. You can then proceed and initiate the domain name transfer straight away without needing to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup websites, as the update will propagate momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
