Transferring an existing domain entails changing the registrar that provides the registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record modifications through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a security option, which is being embraced by more and more registry organizations. It is a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to snatch your domain name. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domain names that support this option are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from us, you’ll exert total command over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, as long as the specific gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will permit you to update that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, 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

In case you wish to transfer a domain from our company to another registrar company and you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to get the domain name ready with only several clicks. All your domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Hepsia Control Panel – the very same tool via which you’ll manage your hosting account. If a particular generic or country-code TLD supports the registrar lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. You can see if the domain name is locked or not by clicking on that icon once and you can update the status by clicking again. This is all it takes and there will be nothing else that you or we will have to do, so you can go ahead with the transfer right away. The update will take effect immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites.
