Transferring an active domain involves switching the domain name registrar that provides the registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record updates through the new domain registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a security option, which is being adopted by more and more registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer process, so nobody can even attempt to steal your domain. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting

With a Linux shared web hosting from us, you will exert full authority over your domains through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through us, provided that the specific gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will permit you to alter that status. In case you want to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to complete the exact same steps.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is remarkably easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domains registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll see a padlock icon if the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you will find out whether the particular domain is locked or not and you will be able to modify this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated instantly and you will be able to start the domain transfer without needing to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
