Transferring an existing domain involves switching the domain registrar that provides the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS modifications through the new domain registrar. The transfer process is standard with most universal and country-specific domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a security option, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even try to steal your domain. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a small padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it away, you will just need to click for the second time and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the exact same location as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

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’ll see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect momentarily, you will be able to initiate the transfer procedure without having to wait for the lock status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not take more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
