Transferring an existing domain name involves changing the registrar company that provides the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS record modifications through the new company. The transfer process itself is standard with most generic and country-code TLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a security feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. 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 and all new domains that support this functionality are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting

With a Linux shared website hosting from us, you’ll have total authority over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through us, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to update that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering your domain names with our company is extremely easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For the sake of convenience, the domains will be displayed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock-like icon if the given domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you’ll find out if the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking once more. The status will change right away and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer process without needing to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
