Transferring an existing domain entails changing the domain name registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS entry modifications through the new domain name registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most universal and country-specific top-level 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 basic steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to snatch your domain. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domain names that support this option are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

With a Linux website hosting service from us, you’ll exercise complete control over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will allow you to change that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering your domain names with us is very easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock-like icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see whether the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking once again. The status will change straight away and you’ll be able to start the domain name 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.
