Transferring an already registered domain name entails changing the company that handles the registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure is standard with most universal and country-specific top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails several necessary steps 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 organizations. It is a default feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer process, so nobody can even attempt to take your domain. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domains that support this functionality are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud package from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a small padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you will just have to click for the second time and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering your domain names with us is amazingly easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to manage the domain names registered through us using the same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see if the specific domain is locked or not and you’ll be able to change this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated right away and you will be able to start the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for our company to do anything on our end.
