Transferring an active domain name involves switching the registrar company that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS record modifications through the new company. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry operators. It is a default feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to steal your domain. The lock can be removed 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 the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a Linux cloud website hosting plan from our company, you will exercise total authority over your domains through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered here, as long as the particular generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will permit you to edit that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia 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 need to follow the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is unbelievably easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domains in the Registered Domains 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 change will take effect instantaneously, you will be able to continue with the transfer procedure without having to wait for the registrar lock status to change on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel.
