Transferring an already registered domain involves changing the domain name registrar that handles the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS modifications through the new company. The transfer process is standard with most generic and country-code 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 basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to register your domain. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domain names that support this functionality are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting from our company, you’ll have complete command over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, on the condition that the specific top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will allow you to alter that status. If you would like to transfer a domain to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your 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 will just have to complete the very same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is really easy and can be accomplished 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 those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will propagate instantly, you’ll be able to go ahead with the domain transfer procedure without the need to wait for the lock status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
