Transferring an active domain name involves changing the domain name registrar that handles the domain name 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 itself is standard with most universal and country-specific domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even try to snatch your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered 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 plan from our company, you will exert complete authority over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, as long as the specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will permit you to edit that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is extremely easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains 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 by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate straight away, you’ll be able to proceed with the domain transfer without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not take more than a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
