Transferring an active domain name involves changing the registrar that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS updates through the new company. The transfer process is standard with most universal and country-specific domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain involves several necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a security feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to snatch your domain name. The domain lock can be annulled 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 Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting package from our company, you will have absolute control over your domain names through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it for the second time will permit you to update that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is unbelievably easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Domain Manager section and the ones 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 immediately, you’ll be able to continue with the transfer process without having to wait for the status to change on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain name away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse in your Control Panel.
