Transferring an existing domain involves changing the registrar company that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record updates through the new registrar company. The transfer process is standard with most generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to snatch your domain. The domain 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 when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from our company, you will exercise absolute control over your domains through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through us, as long as the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol 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 modify that status. In case you want to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the process 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 required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is extremely easy and can be achieved 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 Registered Domains 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 right away, you will be able to continue with the domain name transfer procedure without needing to wait for the status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
