Transferring an active domain name involves changing the company that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS record updates through the new domain registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most universal and country-specific domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails several necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry organizations. It’s a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to steal your domain. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a web hosting from us, you’ll exert absolute authority over your domain names through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the specific TLD extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock logo that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will permit you to alter that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is amazingly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate right away, you will be able to start the domain name transfer without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to be updated on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it again will be just as easy and will not require more than a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
