Transferring an already registered domain name entails switching the company that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS entry modifications through the new registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves a few basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a safety feature, which is being embraced by more and more 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 process, so no one can even attempt to take 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 feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain name registered through our company is incredibly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud web hosting packages, and will take exactly two clicks. All your domain names will be displayed alphabetically in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you will see a padlock-like sign. Click on it once and you will see the domain name’s current status. Click once more and you will alter its status. The update will propagate instantly without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can proceed with the transfer straight away.
