Transferring an existing domain involves changing the registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS modifications through the new registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most generic and country-code TLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain 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 is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to take your domain name. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domains that support this option are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a hosting from us, you’ll exert absolute command over your domain names through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through us, as long as the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will allow you to change that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.
