Transferring an active domain name entails changing the registrar that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS entry updates through the new company. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code TLD 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 name. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more registry organizations. It is a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer process, so no one can even attempt to steal your domain name. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud package from our company, you’ll exert full authority over your domain names through our in-house developed 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 specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will enable you to alter that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you would like to transfer a domain from our company to another domain name registrar and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All your domains will be listed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the same tool via which you will administer your hosting account. If a particular generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock option, you will notice a padlock icon. You can see if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can change the status by clicking once again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will need to do, so you can go ahead with the transfer straight away. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you will not have to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
