Transferring an existing domain involves switching the domain registrar that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS entry modifications through the new registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most universal and country-specific domain name extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a security option, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It is a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so no one can even try to steal your domain name. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting service from our company, you’ll exercise full authority over your domain names through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will permit you to change that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Administering your domain names with our company is very easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domain names will be displayed alphabetically and on the right you will see a padlock-like icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you will see if the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will change momentarily and you will be able to start the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
