Transferring an already registered domain name entails changing the registrar that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS record updates through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most Top-Level Domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails a few basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being embraced by more and more registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to steal your domain name. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domain names that support this functionality are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a web hosting package from us, you’ll exercise total control over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through us, on the condition that the particular domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will permit you to edit that status. If you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to follow the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is remarkably easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect momentarily, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the lock status to change on WHOIS sites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
