Transferring an active domain name entails switching the domain registrar that handles the registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS entry updates through the new company. The transfer process is standard with most generic and country-code domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain involves several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a security option, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to steal your domain name. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll have full control over your domain names through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will allow you to edit that status. If you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can start the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer a domain name from our company to another domain registrar and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain ready with just a few mouse clicks. All your domain names will be shown in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you’ll manage your hosting account. If a specific generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock feature, you’ll see a padlock icon. You can find out if the domain is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can alter the status by clicking once again. That’s all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or our company will have to do, so you can initiate the domain name transfer procedure right away. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you won’t have to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites.
