Transferring an active domain involves switching the registrar company that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS record modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more registry organizations. It’s a default feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so no one can even try to register your domain name. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domains that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from our company, you’ll exercise total authority over your domain names through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, as long as the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will permit you to alter that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is exceptionally easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect momentarily, you’ll be able to start the domain transfer process without needing to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
