Transferring an existing domain name involves changing the domain name registrar that provides the domain 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 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 entails several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being embraced by more and more registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer process, so nobody can even try to snatch your domain name. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered 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 purchase a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you will just have to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panels.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Managing your domain names with our company is really easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon in case the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you’ll see if the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking again. The status will be updated instantaneously and you will be able to start the domain name 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.
