Transferring an existing domain name involves changing the domain registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record modifications through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most generic and country-code domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves a few basic procedures 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 organizations. It’s a default feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer process, so nobody can even try to register your domain name. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll exert total command over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered here, as long as the specific top-level domain name extension supports this option. 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 enable you to alter that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process straight away. 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 will just have to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is extremely easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right you will see a padlock icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will find out if the given domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking again. The status will be changed instantaneously and you will be able to initiate the domain transfer without having to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
