Transferring an existing domain name entails switching the registrar that provides the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer process is standard with most domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain registry operators. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to take your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a Linux cloud web hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only several 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 mini padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just have to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is remarkably easy and can be done through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Registered Domains section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantly, you’ll be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure without waiting for the lock status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and opt 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.
