Transferring an already registered domain name involves switching the domain registrar that provides the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS entry modifications through the new company. The transfer process itself is standard with most generic and country-code domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain involves several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer process, so nobody can even attempt to steal your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this functionality are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

If you order a hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll 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’ll see a small padlock icon. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different platforms.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is amazingly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock-like icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate right away, you’ll be able to start the domain transfer without needing to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS websites. If you change your mind 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 several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
