Transferring an existing domain name involves changing the registrar company that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS entry modifications through the new registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to steal your domain name. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain 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 Hosting
With a hosting plan from our company, you will have absolute command over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you will notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to modify that status. In case you would like 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 immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will 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 truly easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia 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 option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate right away, you’ll be able to go ahead with the domain transfer process without waiting for the status to change on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
