Transferring an active domain entails changing the domain registrar that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS modifications through the new company. The transfer procedure is standard with most Top-Level Domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail 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 security feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain registry organizations. It is a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to take your domain. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domains that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain registered through us is unbelievably easy. This can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting services, and will require exactly two clicks. All your domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you will see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will notice the domain name’s current status. Click once more and you will change its status. The update will take effect momentarily without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can initiate the transfer procedure right away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is very easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domains in the Registered Domains 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 update will take effect straight away, you will be able to continue with the transfer without having to wait for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as easy and will not take more than a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel.
