Transferring an active domain name involves changing the registrar company that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS updates through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most universal and country-specific domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even try to snatch your domain name. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is incredibly easy. This can be achieved through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our cloud hosting, and will require literally two mouse clicks. All your domains will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll notice a padlock-like symbol. Click on it once and you will see the domain name’s present status. Click once again and you will change its status. The change will propagate instantly without the need for you or for our company to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can go ahead with the transfer procedure right away.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Administering 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’ll be able to administer the domains registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you will administer your hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be displayed alphabetically and on the right you’ll notice a padlock-like icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click on the icon, you will see whether the particular domain is locked or not and you will be able to modify this status by clicking once again. The status will be changed instantaneously and you’ll be able to initiate the transfer process without the need to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
